the great destruction and damage to property, the loss of human life, and the spirit of the people as they picked up the pieces and started the recovery process. The recovery process still goes on to this day and the author is to be commended for sharing Mississippi's story.
Five days after Katrina, with the assistance of friends, I traveled from Washington State via Tampa to Gulfport, MS where we assisted family & friends in the recovery effort. "Hurricane Katrina: The Mississippi Story" echoes our experiences and also answers many of our questions . . . James Patterson Smith . . . Thank You!!
