Chita: A Memory of Last Island by Lafcadio Hearn

Chita: A Memory of Last Island by Lafcadio Hearn

Chita a Memory of Last Island was written while Hearn was living in New Orleans. Chita was a young white girl adopted by Spanish parents. The novella was based on the hurricane of 1856. The barrier island of L'Ile Dernicre was totally destroyed and swept into the sea. The story tells of good people living on the edge of an abyss and the brutality of nature. After Hurricane Katrina destroyed portions of New Orleans this story by Hearn has even more significance.

Published by Harper & Brother, 1889
