A Company Man The Remarkable French-Atlantic Voyage of a Clerk for the Company of the Indies A Memoir By Marc-Antoine Caillot Edited by Erin M. Greenwald Translated by Teri F. Chalmers Recently rediscovered and never before published, this buoyant memoir recounts a young man's 1729 voyage from Paris to the New World. An incorrigible rake-if not an outright rogue-Caillot documents a string of pranks, parties, and romantic escapeds, and he speaks with immediacy across the centuries, illuminating racial and ethnic politics, environmental concerns, and the birth of New Orleans's distinctive cultural mélange.
