As Hurricane Harvey approached the United States and the great state of Texas in late August of 2017, residents did their best to prepare for the worst. What followed was a devastating storm beyond comprehension, with winds up to 130 mph forging a path of destruction through the Houston area and into Louisiana. Lives were lost and countless others were changed forever, with recovery and rebuilding efforts just beginning and sure to last years into the future. Amidst catastrophe, Harvey also inspired acts of courage and hope from the many Texans who found the will to triumph against incalculable odds. Seeking shelter and the basic necessities of life, thousands fought on to simply survive the harshest of conditions and help others do the same. This perseverance in the face of ruin is captured in Harvey: Devastation, Courage, and Recovery in the Eye of the Storm, which features gripping stories and nearly 100 vivid full-color images, illustrating the power of the storm and the strength of the many who endured and shined during this tragedy. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each book will be donated to charities that support the communities affected by Hurricane Harvey.
