The Cajun Cheesehead Chronicles, by Jack Caldwell — 25 Comments

  1. Sounds like many of us are to undergo a refresher course on American history. I’ve always loved history, not that I am any expert. But I also anticipate that there seems to be a love story included. Thank you for all the research that obviously went into this, Jack. Did anyone mention the mosquitoes and chiggers? My husband served with the army in Texas and trained in GA. The latter were a serious problem!

    • Mosquitoes and chiggers can be a serious problem in Louisiana, especially mosquitoes. They carried Yellow Fever. However, in this story, those critters are not an issue. You’ll have to read the book to learn the surprising reason! Thanks for commenting.

  2. Hmm. These names seem awfully familiar. Oh yea, I just had a flashback of 8th grade Louisiana History. 🙂 thanks Jack for the sneak peek. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Wow! I’m going to need photos, maps, diagrams, whatever… ‘cos we never learned any of this in school in Hawaii. Can’t guess how you will get Darcy and Fitzwilliam to become friends – or realize they are cousins, if that is your plan. Thank you for the preview!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for your excerpt, I do look forward to reading the finished product. I also have to say that I am surprised to hear mention of Johnny Horton, who I recall listening to as a kid – I remember my parents had one of his albums with that song about the Battle of New Orleans. Maybe I’m also surprised that someone wrote a song about the Battle of New Orleans??

  5. I’m not familiar with American history so this is a new historical read for me. Thanks for combining the two things I love, Austenesque and history. I will definitely would love to read your new book, Jack.
