The book explores his artistic education, aesthetic principles, and Cajun legacy, and presents a broad survey of the various stages of his career.

Particular concentration is given to his Cajun period, during which Rodrigue expressed the rich legacy of his Cajun background and the Cajun way of life. Sensing that the Cajun way was waning in the modern world, Rodrigue established his work on canvas as a method to record it for the ages. Attention is also given to portraits and Rodrigues Blue Dog work.

Invited to illustrate a collection of Cajun ghost stories, Rodrigue painted his late pet dog Tiffany as the dark creature of the tale of the loup-garou. With its characteristic mesmerizing yellow-eyed stare, Blue Dog has become fixture of contemporary art, finding a place in the hearts of an ever-widening audience. Lavishly illustrated with more than 200 full-color plates. 12 x 10.
