from the Foreword: "Beautiful Crescent is a good short basic history of New Orleans - and more. We use it as a textbook in training Friends of the Cabildo volunteers. It's a foundation, a springboard, an appetizer - just enough factual history, just enough "people" history to tantalize and whet our appetites to delve into the books in the Bibliography. The wonderful lists of governors, mayors, noted personalities, and the chronology make Beautiful Crescent an indispensible tool for tour guides - and indeed fun for everyone else who loves New Orleans.
