Tant que Durera la Terre

Written by John Doucet, Tant que Durera la Terre is a dedication to all the historical families of Cheniere Cominada - those taken as well as those spared to keep the story alive. The slender ridge that rises above the marshland leading to Grand Isle, Louisiana, was once a densely-populated fishing community known as Chenerie Cominada. In the late 19th century, the French-speaking but multi-ethnic community of 1700 persons served as the major supplier of fish and shellfish to the restaurants of New Orleans. On the night of October 1st, 1893, the history, economy, settlement and ancestry of Cheneire Cominada, as well as that of all southeastern Louisiana, was forcibly changed forever.
