Quercus Louisiana is a rare and remarkable book that follows one artist’s journey to document Louisiana’s oldest live oak trees, before they are lost and forgotten.
This book reveals, through photos and text, the magic and mystery of Louisiana’s old live oaks – its oldest historic oaks, that pre-date European settlement; the historic allees, how the live oak became a cultural icon of Louisiana. And it shares some of the human stories connected with the oaks – anecdotes and accounts of the generations of diverse people who settled and built their homes near the oaks’ sheltering limbs.
This book is available in hardcover ($37.50).
William Guion discusses and signs his book, Quercus Louisiana: The Splendid Live Oaks of Louisiana.
