Description

Since the middle of the last century more than 90 percent of Isle de Jean Charleshas dissolved into the southern Louisiana bayou. The island, which is connected to the outside world by a road that's known to flood in perfect weather, is home to a tribe of Native americans who have fished and hunted there since the 1800s.
