About this item

Louisiana’s sixth largest city, Kenner, is often looked upon simply as a suburb of New Orleans and home to Louis Armstrong International Airport. An Untractable Country: The History of Kenner, Louisiana, reveals that Kenner has its own unique and dynamic history separate from that of New Orleans. This is the first book-length narrative of the three-hundred- year-long story of the people and events that transformed an area located along the Mississippi River, approximately thirteen miles upriver from the Crescent City, from a grassy Indian hunting ground to one of Louisiana’s largest municipalities. From its earliest times as the colonial settlement of Cannes Brûlées, through its incarnation as the small antebellum town of Kennerville, to its rapid growth as a suburban bedroom community during the second half of the twentieth century, the story of Kenner exemplifies life in communities across the state and fills an important void in the greater mosaic of the story of Louisiana.
