Potter, captures the essence of the American entrepreneurial spirit in the historic South. This compelling novel traces the journey of her great-grandfather, Captain Clyde Barbour, a figure synonymous with resilience, innovation, and the transformative power of vision.
Recently, ‘Barbours Cut’ was honored at events across significant historical sites in Louisiana, tracing the footsteps of its protagonist.

The journey continued to the Tchefuncta Country Club in Covington, LA, a locale deeply intertwined with Potter’s family history and the early oil industry narratives in ‘Barbours Cut’.

It is the rags-to-riches story of her great-grandparents’ lives around the turn of the 20th century. It reads like historical fiction but then, inserted among the pages, are amazing, vintage photographs of the real characters, reminding the reader that this is a true story. Nancy’s wealth of knowledge and attention to detail add much credibility to this remarkable story. I couldn’t put it down.”
