with an interesting and enjoyable introduction to Louisiana heritage. In her
book, she describes the lives of over twenty inspirational men and women from
the different cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds that make up Louisiana
In Flags of Louisiana, Frois provides detailed descriptions of
the designs, symbols, and stories of all the national flags that have flown over
Louisiana. She also includes parish and city flags in this informative and
useful historical guide for all ages.

daunting, the guide is surprisingly and easily accessible. This almanac is a
staple for all Louisiana classrooms.
