Editorial Reviews

Hurricane Katrina in the summer of 2005 was obviously a massive human catastrophe. It was also a terrible calamity for pets and other animals. Indeed, experts estimate that more than 50,000 animals perished in the onslaught and its aftermath. In the aftermath of this disaster, heroic acts performed by Louisiana State University's Equine Rescue Team saved the lives of hundreds of horses that would have almost certainly died. Horses of the Storm recounts the efforts of this apparently tireless group of staff and volunteers as they accomplished the largest equine rescue ever.
