Vanishing Paradise
Duck Hunting In The Louisiana Marsh
by John R. Kemp
 
The Louisiana Gulf Coast is one of the most important ecosystems in the world, producing one-third of our nation’s seafood and a significant percentage of its oil and natural gas. Unfortunately, erosion threatens the very existence of this Edenic marshland. Among the most fervent champions of the shrinking Louisiana wetlands are the members of the twenty-six private and commercial duck-hunting clubs profiled here. John Kemp and Julia Sims visited these exclusive enclaves to capture -- in words, pictures, and recipes -- their vanishing traditions. 

Packed with stunning outdoor photography, Vanishing Paradise: Duck Hunting in the Louisiana Marsh offers an unforgettable glimpse of this elusive environment. From the hunters’ breakfast well before dawn to a hearty supper of the day’s catch, John Kemp and Julia Sims chronicle an unforgettable day in Sportsman’s Paradise.
