This book spans the period from 1717 to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The work provides updated stories and photos of Camille survivors and a list of the storm’s casualties. Dr. Steve Lyons and Jim Cantore, both of The Weather Channel, provide forewords for the book.
This book contains the best of 46,000 images taken principally from the C.C. “Tex” Hamill Down South Magazine and the Dixie Press collections spanning 1925-1980. In preserving the images of a world now gone for those who once lived there and for those who, after Katrina, never can, this album makes a vital contribution to the history of the Coast.
hardback and softcover
“The Longleaf and Me A-Z” by Sandra Cassibry, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (MGCCC) art instructor, Jeffery Jones, MGCCC Graphic Design Technology instructor, and Kathryn Lewis, consultant and former MGCCC fine-arts instructor, combines simple scientific information with vibrant artwork created by elementary school children and community college students.
Through wood-block, linocut art and photographs, the book highlights such South Mississippi wildlife as the gopher tortoise, raccoon and turkey vulture, and such plant life as kudzu, dogwood and magnolias. The book creatively shows what the animals look like, explains the habitat and diet of the local wildlife, and why some plants thrive in the South’s humid, warm climate.
“The Longleaf and Me A-Z” is a partnership with MGCCC, the Mississippi Arts Commission, Mississippi Power, Mississippi Coastal Plains Resource Conservation and Development Council, Inc. and Project Learning Tree, GreenWorks. The project and related activities and publications are dedicated to energizing learning by combining art, reading, science and the local environment. The project’s coordinators, sponsors, writers and artists gratefully acknowledge the contributions of zoo and museum experts, teachers, and local biologists.
A book about water and the people, plants and animals that use it.
Inspired by elementary students in Stone County, who partnered with MGCCC Perkinston Campus art and graphic arts students and faculty, supported by biologists and environmental specialists.
