Item description for That Rough Beast, Its Hour Come Round at Last: A History of Hurricane Katrina by Heather Andrews...
On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina--the costliest hurricane ever to hit the United States--monopolized headlines, thoughts, and hearts across the country as lives were forever changed, some erased. This book not only chronicles the devastation of that storm but also immortalizes through words and photographs some of the tales of personal tragedy associated with it, while celebrating the resilience of the human spirit, as communities come together and begin to rebuild.
"We are dealing with one of the worst natural disasters in our nation's history. . . . This is going to be a difficult road. The challenges that we face on the ground are unprecedented. But there's no doubt in my mind we're going to succeed. Right now the days seem awfully dark for those affected--I understand that. But I'm confident that, with time, you can get your life back in order, new communities will flourish . . . and America will be a stronger place for it. The country stands with you. We'll do all in our power to help you. May God bless you."--President George W. Bush
