8 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and French and held by 1,656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 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

On a clear, warm Sunday, April 14, 1935, a wild wind whipped up millions upon millions of these specks of dust to form a duster -- a savage storm on America's high southern plains. The sky turned black; sand-filled winds scoured the paint off houses and cars; trains derailed; and electricity coursed through the air. Sand and dirt fell like snow, people got lost in the gloom and suffocated ... and that was just the beginning
