Thick and lush, an overgrowth of green guards the rim of the waters. Sundown nears. So begins the creature chatter of the night. That's Cajun Country. And, BackPax takes you there.

A guided tour into Cajun Country: its people, folklore, traditions, language and even its tastes. The history of Acadians (Cajuns) from Canada to Louisiana. "Buried Treasure, Buried History," mysteries of the bayous. Catfish farming, a filmmaker's tales with articles, puzzles, crafts, a recipe for gumbo, glossary and more.
30-minute live-action audio recorded in Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico. Produced with state-of-the-art audio drama technique.
Rare old tales of the bayous tickle the imagination with the magical style of authentic Cajun storytelling. Rich in legend and unique in history, this travelogue intercuts the voices of the Cajuns themselves. Savor the flavor of a simmering blend of food, festivals and music. Days of work and nights of wonder come alive - shrimping in the Gulf of Mexico and the fais-do-dos (country dances). As they say in Cajun Country: Laissez les bons temps rouler! Let the good times roll!
