History is about the people who lived it. In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast of the United States. The storm and its aftermath were catastrophic. Told in a narrative nonfiction format, these are the powerful true stories of some of the storm's survivors.
Major historical events are retold in the style of a short novel. Actual photos and illustrations from the era reinforce that the content is accurate, even though it is presented as a narrative.
