Bienville Parish, founded in 1848, is located in central north Louisiana. While perhaps most well-known for its ties to outlaws Bonnie and Clyde, Bienville Parish has a rich timber and railroad history that has shaped the community for over a century. Settlers moved into the region to take advantage of its flourishing industry, but it was community that led people to put down roots in the area. Religion and education formed the basis of everyday life in the rural region. In this photographic history, Bienville Parish is depicted through the lives of the people who inhabited the area. Although its size has decreased in recent years, the people who still reside in the parish have made it a priority to preserve the memories for future generations. Available in paperback or eBook.

A naked killer flees from police, a shootout on Main Street, a fight between police and bootleggers on the running board of a fast-moving Ford Model T, and courtroom drama which went all the way to the United States Supreme Court. The adoption of the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution spawned an era of lawlessness. Bootleggers and law enforcement officers fought what seemed like a never ending battle, and many people died as a result. In the middle of the prohibition era, four Louisiana officers were killed in the line of duty while enforcing prohibition laws in a two week period. Whiskey and Blood is the shocking but true story of the events leading up to the deaths of officers Neill Yarborough, Sample Toms, Sam Duhon and W.E. Collins, and the aftermath which followed.
