    One thought on “The Last Hayride”

    1. I knew of John Maginnis from a state political column regularly published in the Shreveport Times, where Maginnis would make sense of the often complicated state of Louisiana politics. This book is his coverage of the 1983 race for governor with Edwards versus Treen, and the crazy factor is upped by quite a bit. I entered Louisiana after Edwards's four terms as governor, but I had certainly heard of him and the air of corruption that surrounded him along with many other local politicians. Maginn [...]

    2. For me, this was one of those books that made me want to write something in the same field - state politics, though Maginnis' was Louisana and mine was Idaho. (I did get that Idaho book done a few years after reading this one.) Hayride is a fine depiction of Louisiana politics through the lens of a campaign for the governorship by Edwin Edwards, showing how he succeeded through an awareness of how politics in the state worked in practice, not in theory.

    3. I don't know much about politics, but political stuff aside The Last Hayride often shows the lighter side to campaigning away from all the formal seriousness. Well-written and interesting, this book is really worth reading.

    5. I love Governor Edwin Edwards but this book just made me fall more in love with him. He is the most sexious Cajun man EVER!
