Excellent accounts of the 1938 storm. Being from the area of Long Island, New York that was impacted by this storm, I can vouch that what I "read" is a thorough description of the fierce fury brought forth to the land and people in its way. Many personal stories woven into a well managed chronology of the event.
Well told story of the issues of the 1920's handling of New Orleans flood management had me comparing the results to the outcomes we saw with Katrina. Good background of Louisiana political arena that seems to have a core value much the same today as the period this book describes.
