The parish has a rich history begun by people of many different descents—French, Spanish, English, Scotch-Irish, German, Italian, and Jewish—coming together in mutual respect and peace, but not without the ups and downs that come with the human condition.The books takes the reader on six “tours” through Avoyelles, from the towns of Marksville and Cocoville to Lake Pearl and Cottonport, giving the reader a penned as well as pictorial background of life in the parish as well as the culture that still thrives within them.
