Vanished Mississippi Gulf Coast by Jim Fraiser

Book Description

The day before Hurricane Katrina's thirty-five-foot-tall tidal surge wiped away three hundred years of the GulfCoast's history, including numerous antebellum and other historic structures, Jim Fraiser and Rick Guy were still photographing the Mississippi Gulf Coast to document and preserve her history, culture, and architecture. This book, containing 142 color photographs of what existed before and after Katrina, provides updatedinformation on historical landmarks from Biloxi's Beauvoir, the last residence of Confederate president Jefferson Davis, to Gulfport's Dantzler House, home to one of Mississippi's most significant lumber-exporting families. Fraiser and Guyhave done a brilliant job paying homage to the coastal landmarks that once lined the beach highways and transported visitors to bygone eras of unsurpassed luxury. Fraiser, who has always been impressed by the resilience of the Gulf Coast residents who survived three majorwars, plague, and numerous devastating hurricanes, wrote, "We offer this book as a reminder to the world of what the vanished Mississippi coast was before August 29, 2005, and, considering the unyielding spirit of her people, what it willsurely be once again."
