174-page spiral-bound softcover
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.
