As a life long resident of neighboring Louisiana, I experienced the storm and saw first hand the destruction it brought, even where I live roughly 100 miles inland.

We always see the pictures of the destruction on the news. Destruction makes for good headlines in today's world. We never really see what goes on after though. The rescuers and volunteers who come and help pick up the pieces are rarely the highlight on any news channel. If all you ever saw was what the news displayed, you would be led to believe that the coast was simply left a disaster or that some little elves came and did the clean up. Most of us who live here, know better.

I offer my sincere thanks, not only to Anthony Veltri for sharing his experiences through this book, but to every man and woman who came down to the coast and helped put it back together. This book offers a behind the scenes look at the people who came to our aid, and the methods and tools they used to get the job done. Mother Nature will always come back to put us in our place, and it is a very humbling and awe inspiring experience, to stand in the eye of the storm, but it can never compare to the feelings inspired when I see the way people band together to help one another in the aftermath. That is where hope is found.

A truly inspirational narrative with images both tragic and triumphant. I read it in one sitting and passed it straight to my wife afterwards. We sheltered through Katrina in Biloxi and have always felt not enough attention was paid to the destruction and subsequent recovery of the MS Gulf Coast. A testament to the sacrifice and effort of volunteers such as those in the book as well as the resiliency and perseverance of the people of Mississippi.

I have your original book but just downloaded this version to my PC. How do I purchase additional copies to send to family and friends? (Yes, I am computer challenged)

I work in the health care field and will be sending a link to your book to the corporate office to see how we can utilize its importance. Distributing all the literature with checklists of things to have on hand is very important. However, it really drives home the importance of preparation based on the pictures of actual distruction from the forces of nature. Do you have any picture downloads that can be used for presentations? We will be going into hurricane season shortly and a presentation format would be good to take to home owner association meetings, church meetings, company meetings, etc.

The county I live in has set up some shelters that are pet friendly. It was realized during Katrina that their are people who just won't leave their pets. Do not leave your pets to fend for themselves.

I googled to see if there was a national day honoring search and rescue people and their dogs but did not find one. We really need to honor their sacrifices.

Thank you for your contribution to get this information out there.

Anthony Veltri has given us a well-crafted account of first responders in the aftermath of Katrina. It is full of beautiful pictures of horror that show the fragility of life and the heroism of ordinary men and women. It's a quick read, but one that will stay with you in gratitude for the goodness of people in the face of natural disaster.

As the father living in Australia, of a Police Officer who stayed behind in New Orleans with five other professional police officers at the Ernest M Morel Convention Center where there were15-20,000 people who were forgotten and the government didn't know they were there for nearly a week, I was looking for the truth. The happenings at Rhode Island were interesting but we in Australia see those sorts of disasters with floods and fires yearly. That is not to take away that Katrina was not a major disaster which affected thousands whilst a government sat on their hands and showed total lack of leadership and preparedness.

A really good book should be written about the police operations of the New Orleans Police sixth district and the real truth of what happened at the Convention Center.

Katrina was an incredible disaster that turned this urban center into a third world nation. The pictures alone in this book were stunning. I gave it 4 stars in that I wanted the book to be a bit longer (less than 100 pages). [...]This book is over 400 pages and includes a section on Hurricane Katrina in the front- I think that it offers a bit more of a comprehensive guide on disaster survival and preparedness-- and prime members can read it for free. If that's what you are looking for.
