Publisher Comments:

A lively free-hittingnarrative . . . written with a proper appreciation of the grotesque humor ofmany of its episodes . . . but also with the proper appreciation of thepolitical significance . . . for the rest of the United States.New York Times Book ReviewThis book deserves to be widely read.Library JournalNothing like the regime of Huey Long has ever been enactedon American soil before. Only a patriot of the staunchest character could standup to the power of Huey and the threats and reprisals which he used so freely.Those who were willing to do so paralleled the acts of America's bravestpatriots at any stage of American history.Nearly all the books on this subject end with the death of Huey Long. LouisianaHayride continues through the years of scandals which ended in my election in1940. Huey's prediction that his successors would never be able to wield hisgreat power without going to jail was born out by events described in thisbook.This is the story of the sowing of the wind, but the major part of the book isdevoted to the reaping of the whirlwind. In this telling, Louisiana Hayride isunsurpassed.It is a story for all Americans.From the forward by Sam Houston JonesGovernor, 1940-1944
