Louisiana Delta-Teche/Vermilion Basin

“Southwest of the Teche, a number of small bayous rise, and flow into the Vermilion and Atchafalaya bays. The most remarkable of these streams are, the Petite Anse, Bayou Cypriere Mort (dead cypress) Bayou Caroline, Bayou Sale, and the Myrtle Bayou. Some good arable land lies upon the Bayou Cypriere Mort, and Bayou Sale, rendered more valuable, as being within the climate suitable for sugar cane. The intermediate space between those water courses, like other parts of the coast of Louisiana, is morass.”--William Darby, 1816
