Bayou Farewell: The Rich Life and Tragic Death of Louisiana's Cajun Coast

If you're looking for a meaningful book on the crisis in New Orleans and what needs to be done before rebuilding that city, then you should pick up a copy of Mike Tidwell's book Bayou Farewell: The Rich Life and Tragic Death of Louisiana's Cajun Coast . I saw him on Meet the Press today and he was impressive. Gets 5 Star reviews at Amazon.

If you missed Meet the Press today , you can read the transcript of the show .

If you want to read an interesting article appearing in the Houston Chronicle about New Orleans written in 2001, then read Keeping Its Head Above Water - New Orleans Faces doomsday scenario

I've donated to each of the organizations above, including Noah's Wish (for animals) and I admire you for stepping up to do something concrete. Thanks for posting your link. As an owner of 2 cats, I understand the loss people feel when they have to leave without their pets. I was watching Anderson Cooper tonight on CNN out in a boat and pointing out dogs, cats, etc that were sitting in trees in shock and practically unapproachable. It's a tremendously sad thing to see, not to mention all the humans I'm afraid we're going to see uncovered in the coming days.
