Summary
Dobie (U. of Louisiana, Lafayette, retired) documents how the Cajundome in Lafayette was used as an emergency shelter during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and how leadership, organizations skills and bravery turned this effort into a relative success, especially when compared to the events in New Orleans. The author mixes accounts from evacuees and rescuer workers with her own experiences during this natural disaster to provide a compelling and sometimes tragic account of the wake of the hurricane. Written for general audiences, this book also focuses on the subsequent recovery and rebuilding efforts in Southern Louisiana. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
