Overview

In his introduction, the author writes, �We offer this book as a reminder to the world of what the vanished Mississippi was before August 29, 2005, and considering the unyielding spirit of her people, what it will surely be once again.� From Biloxi�s Beauvoir, Confederate president Jefferson Davis�s Greek Revival-style cottage, to Gulfport�s Mission-style Dantzler House, historic landmarks that once lined Mississippi�s beaches and represented a bygone era of unsurpassed luxury have either been heavily damaged or reduced to rubble by Hurricane Katrina.The history, architecture, and cultures of the towns of Ocean Springs, Pascagoula, Biloxi, Gulfport, Pass Christian, and Bay St. Louis are each described from their beginnings to the present day, including over 100 color photographs that show what existed before and after Hurricane Katrina.

Editorial Reviews

The relentless onslaught of building-high Hurricane Katrina tidal surges washed away hundreds of years of Mississippi history in just hours. Just days before the deluge, Jim Fraiser and Rick Guy were busy photographing the Mississippi Gulf Coast, documenting its visible history. Vanished Mississippi collects more than 140 photographs of historic coastal landmarks that perished or suffered major damage during this natural catastrophe.
