Isle Madame Families

D'Escousse, Petit de Grat and West Arichat. The book contains hundreds
of pictures, some never before seen. Read about the Island's Haunting &
Strange Tales and the many Heritage homes throughout the island. Articles
have been written about the five parishes and the islands businesses of
yesterday and today. You will enjoy the many stories of life on the island
along with the Shipwreck Stories. The book contains some of my favorite
recipes as well as the History of our schools. You will enjoy reading about
the founding of Louisdale and the stories of the great musical and artistic
talents from Isle Madame.
