"I would like to recommend the solid work of Chad LeBlanc to anyone interested in the Canarian history in the US. This book explores this Canarian map of the area through interviews with descendants, including a few who did not even know about their Canarian roots! A very serious and sincere work."
"The book is very clear and interesting and you deserve a huge congratulations on 'The Roots of the Bayou' which I'm sure will become a staple on Louisiana genealogy shelves as a must read volume of historical fiction."
"Got the book at about 8pm and finished it at 11:30pm the same night. I loved it. It tells the story of south Louisiana to a tee. I couldn't put it down."
"LeBlanc's writing style relates the events that occur with competence and I was always keen to know where the story was heading. Dialogue between characters always felt real, not contrived and this for me is crucial for my immersion in the action of the book, which leads to literal enjoyment and a need, propelling me to reach the end."
