Description


Hurricane seasons have become overactive since 2005 when Hurricane Katrina hit. The only longitudinal study on a single group of women disaster survivors in America, The Overlooked Voices of Hurricane Katrina brings overlooked voices to the forefront as these women share their stories and strategies of survival and recovery before, during, and after Katrina. Using narrative theory and author Alice Walker's "womanist" orientation, these empowered women provide, in their own words, lessons learned and strategies for how to rebuild one's life after disasters.
