In the rolling hills of Louisiana's Felicianas, less than an hour north of Baton Rouge on the east bank of the Mississippi River, lies the historic community of St. Francisville. For generations, this picturesque town has inspired a variety of creative artists, from naturalist John James Audubon to acclaimed novelist Katherine Anne Porter. Award-winning photographer Bevil Knapp embraces this lively tradition by lending her own perspective on a region Audubon once praised as an expression of "the greatness of the Creator in all his unrivaled works." Knapp offers stunning views of the stately historic homes that draw thousands of tourists annually. In addition, her photographs reveal the town's continuing vitality as a respite from urban life. A cherished memento for locals and visitors alike, St. Francisville summons readers to discover the rich treasures of this wondrous region for themselves.
