Abstract:

Time chronicles the story of the greatest natural disaster in U.S. history. Here is Americaœs Gulf Coast from New Orleans to Biloxi and Gulfport, Mississippi in ruins, the struggling survivors and their valiant rescuers, the looters and the police who fought to control them, the homeless refugees who poured across the southeast and the resourceful agencies that took them in. Award-winning pictures reveal the scope of the disaster while oral histories offer unforgettable accounts of natureœs power and manœs resourcefulness. Illuminating graphics show how hurricanes form and why New Orleans flooded. Powerful reporting puts readers on the scene, while insightful analysis explores the questions left in Katrinaœs wake: could the tragedy have been prevented, and why was aid so late to arrive? Moving and informative, sweeping in scope and ringing with the voices of those who were there is the definitive account of a disaster that will haunt Americans for decades to come. --- Amazon.com.
