Description

Three Weeks with Gustav is a nonfiction adventurous and historical novel. It chronicles the day-to-day activities of my life with Hurricane Gustav for three weeks. It starts on Wednesday, August 27, 2008 and proceeds through Wednesday, September 17, 2008. Each day is a separate chapter. Each chapter starts when I wake up in the morning until I go to bed at night. The book deals with individual and State preparations for the storm, the storm itself, and our struggle for survival after the storm. We had a number of harrowing experiences during those three weeks. It includes the problems our teenagers gave us and how we relied on our Catholic faith to deal with those issues. It includes my experiences working at a critical needs storm shelter and the disaster food stamp distribution sites. It also includes historical information about Louisiana, descriptions of places and comparisons to other storms including Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. I wish to involve readers in Louisiana, its fascinating history, and the hardships its citizens face living on the Gulf Coast. An underlying theme addresses the lack of respect today's teenagers have for their parents, but the book blossoms into the devastating toll the storm took on my wife and me, our neighbors, and the City of Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. It concludes with the idea that families, neighbors, communities, and countrymen always come closer together during times of crisis.
