Welcome, Cher!

I’m Jim LaBove, an author and illustrator from Sabine Pass, Texas. Growing up in the salt marshes of bayou Cajun country gave me a unique outlook on a side of Cajun life most folks may have never known. Now, I’m happy to share my heritage and history with you.

Cotton’s Seafood began as a seafood company owned by Cotton LaBove in the 1950’s, based out of the remote, marshy Sabine Pass, Texas. Jim LaBove has since written a series of books named after the company, centered memories and authentic recipes he picked up as a bayou Cajun.

Proudly Supporting The Cameron Preservation Alliance

The Sabine Pass Lighthouse went into operation in 1857. The light was permanently extinguished by the Coast Guard in 1952 when modern technology made it obsolete. The Cameron Preservation Alliance is dedicated to stabilizing and restoring the historical structure.
