Drowned city : Hurricane Katrina & New Orleans

Brown, Don, 1949-, author, illustrator.

Boston : Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, [2015]

96 pages : chiefly color illustrations, color map ; 27 cm.

"On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina's monstrous winds and surging water overwhelmed the protective levees around low-lying New Orleans, Louisiana. Eighty percent of the city flooded, in some places under twenty feet of water. Property damages across the Gulf Coast topped $100 billion. One thousand eight hundred and thirty-three people lost their lives. The riveting tale of this historic storm and the drowning of an American city is one of selflessness, heroism, and courage-- and also of incompetence, racism, and criminality. Don Brown's kinetic art and as-it-happens narrative capture both the tragedy and triumph of one of the worst natural disasters in American history"--Provided by publisher.
