Overview
The antebellum South is celebrated in this beautiful coffee table book featuring over 100 full-color photographs of restored plantation homes. The homes bespeak the grandeur of days gone by when plantation homes were decorated exquisitely, furnished lavishly, and surrounded by vast acreages of lush croplands. Full-page photographs are accompanied by text highlighting the history and outstanding architectural features of each home. The styles of the homes ae far-ranging and include excellent examples of Victorian Gothic, Colonial, Italianate, Acadian, and Southern Classical architecture, with some homes combining two or more styles. Destrehan, Edgewood, Houmas House, Nottoway, Magnolia Mound, Oak Alley, and Shadows-on-the-Teche--all carefully preserved and open to the public--are some of the 76 plantation homes featured in the work.

Author
The late Paul and Lee Malone collaborated on several books on the Louisiana area. Mr. Malone (d.1993) was a critically acclaimed portrait photographer, often considered to be a master in his field. To each of the books, he contributed photographs, and Mrs. Malone (d.2007) provided historical information. Together, they created eight masterful books depicting the true beauty behind many of Louisiana's historic sites. Paul Malone Photography Studio in New Orleans was owned and managed by the Malones.
