That Rough Beast, Its Hour Come Round at Last

A History of Hurricane Katrina

Edited by Heather Andrews, Tameika Ashford, Joshua Bowen, Brandon Cooper, Lesley Cort, Michael Dunican, Steven Rydarowski and Melanie Sweeney
Foreword by Paul Ruffin

On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina—the costliest hurricane ever to hit the United States—monopolized headlines, thoughts, and hearts across the country as lives were forever changed, some erased. This book not only chronicles the devastation of that storm but also immortalizes through words and photographs some of the tales of personal tragedy associated with it, while celebrating the resilience of the human spirit, as communities come together and begin to rebuild.

The editors of this book were all members of Dr. Paul Ruffin's Editing and Publishing class at Sam Houston State University during the fall of 2006. They wrote the text of the book and provided most of the pictures.
