    " This book was mesmerizing and heartbreaking. It shines a light on a Katrina story that was not focused on very much in the mainstream media. Anyone who is interested in the topic at all should read this book. "

    " Outstanding research and writing about Hurricane Kristina and its impact on residents of St. Bernard Parish. A very personal look at some folks who lived and fished and cared for that part of South Louisiana. "

    " This book was interesting and very informative. I am glad this reporter managed to get to the St. Bernard parish and tell the story of what happened during and after Katrina, or I guess we would never know. "

    " A very interesting insight into a culture few understand and even fewer are aware of. A vanishing part of the american fabric "
