The 250 page book, Love Of Home,Liz Chrysler. Author Liz Chrysler-Stacy will be holding a book signing event at the Carmel Community Center on Saturday, October 23, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. This book is a follow up of Lost Legacy: Weaving an American Tapestry of Conflicting Cultures. The chief character is developed around the life of Luvenia DeSoto, daughter of Marcel DeSoto II, raised at Carmel. This book, Love of Home, follows the life of a farmerís daughter into the life of the oil field, moving with her oil drilling husband each time a rig was brought in and new location was dictated by the company for which he worked.

Luvenia is a direct descendant of Louis Juchereau de St. Denis, who established Natchitoches, the beginning of Louisiana territory. The son of his youngest daughter and her Spanish husband, Manuel DeSoto, brought the first families into the wildwoods of what is now DeSoto Parish. Her mother, Ora Vascoque DeSoto, was a direct descendant of J. P. Lafitte, one of those earliest settlers.

Liz is the daughter of Luvenia DeSoto McLemore, and is now proud of the life that established her family in the transient life of the oil field. She will be glad to answer any questions you may have, for she researched the beginning of DeSoto Parish for almost 20 years before writing Lost Legacy.
