Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: A hurricane is building over the Gulf of Mexico, threatening the coastal town of Bois Sauvage, Mississippi, and Esch's family is stocking food--but there isn't much to save. Over twelve days leading up to the arrival of Hurricane Katrina, the family pulls itself up the lonesome, brutal, and restrictive realities of rural poverty to struggle for another day.
