Overview

Raping Louisiana: A Diary of Deceit is a non-fictional account of clean-up efforts after the devastations caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. It is not, however, your normal story filled with facts, figures and statistics. This story puts a human face on an area that was raped by nature and deceived by its government. Based upon the diary of a truck driver by the name of Steve, we see a first hand account of the daily routine, the challenges and the bureaucratic ineptness that have, and still plague the residents of Louisiana. From leaving his family in northern New York to his daily runs removing mountains of trash, the remnants of lives destroyed, Steve tells a story in his diary entries that is far removed from the "official accounts of government agencies and "spin doctors." Author, Philip Harris uses these diary entries to masterfully create a new mural of the despair and frustration that still exists in Louisiana. If this account reflects and accurate portrait of our nation's emergency preparedness system, you may want to be sure you have your own personal emergency plan ready.
