French America explores the rich French heritage in the United States. It is a highly visual book and a unique publication. Never before has the French heritage in America been presented this way—in full colour and with accompanying commentary. The book contains a broad overview of the history and present state of French structures and sites still standing in the US, from New England to the Gulf of Mexico. This is interspersed with special features on elements of French culture in the United States, such as the Huguenots and their descendants, French plantation architecture, and the cultural importance of Cajun country in Louisiana

He has written extensively on travel and business issues for several newspapers and magazines including the London Sunday Times, the International Herald Tribune, Business Travellerand others.
