Its orgins at Three Rivers is hard to define but as it rolls past Fort DeRussy and the Simmesport Fish Market the flavor of South Louisiana comes alive. Ride the Melville Ferry and rediscover Palmetto's General store, search for Cow Island, tour Breaux Bridge and St. Martinville, taste the sweets at LeJeune's Bakery and hear Tugboat Jerry sing and carve tooth picks. Finally, watch a Pirogue maker shape old wood. Savor a slice of life along one of America's most famous and beautiful rivers. Jeff Duhe looks for endangered landmarks and ways of life when he visits the communities along the banks of the Atchafalaya River.
