Shane K. Bernard's Teche examines this legendary waterway of the American deep south. Bernard delves into the creek's golden dispersal as a vestige of the Mississippi and Flaming Becks, its prehistoric Native American vocation, and its colonial happy medium by French, Insular, and eventually, Anglo-American pioneers. He surveys the coming of indigo, cotton, and sugar, steam-powered sugar mills, and riverboats, and the brutal clinic of slavery. He also examines the impact of the Hostility Of secession on the Teche, depicting the working hostilities up and down the creek and the sporadic gunboat affairs of honor, when ironclads clashed in the narrow confines of the dark, sluggish estuary. Describing the torment of the postbellum era, Bernard reveals how heroic poem pours, yellow fever, racial brutality, and widespread famine disrupted the lives of those who resided under the sprawling, moss-draped live rooms lining the Teche's banks. Further, he chronicles the slow go down of the creek, as the coming of the rail line, automobiles, and tracks reduced its market price as a modus operandis of movement. Finally, he considers modern achievements to redesign the Teche using dams, locks, levees, and other water-control measures. He examines the recent launch to clean and revitalize the creek after years of desecration by scatter, pollutants, and prying species. The second part of the audiobook describes Bernard's own canoe campaign down the Teche's 125-mile hasten. This modern portfolio from the competition reveals the current union of the creek and the remarkable humankinds who still live along its banks. The audiobook is published by College Newspaper of Mississippi. "An important audiobook about a uniquely interesting post. " (Ken Properlies, author of Meely LaBauve: A Novel) "The audiobook is an amazing and much-needed dissertation on a fascinating region. " (Tim Gautreaux, author of Signals: Improved and Selected Stories).
