The Hippo of Cross Lake

Erick Brock's Shreveport

Eric Brock's Shreveport is a collection of vignettes on the history of Shreveport. The pieces were originally written for Brock's column that ran on the JournalPage. Today, Brock is a columnist for The Forum News.

"It is not meant to be a comprehensive history of the city, but rather a sort of tour through its past," notes Brock in the book's introduction.
You'll find the story of Cross Lake hippo in the chapter Brock titled Strange but True.

Eric Brock's Shreveport was published in 2001 by the Pelican Publishing Company in Gretna, Louisiana.
