October 10, 2018, changed us forever. It was hard to imagine coming back from this. But at heart, the people of the Florida Panhandle are strong. They are the heroes in this story. The ones who inspire hope and wield inexhaustible strength. This is their story. Told in their own words. In their poetry. In the images they captured.

Hurricane Michael brought so many changes

Thank you, Jennifer, for taking the time to record the catastrophic events of October 10, 2018. I live in the same region, but to the west of you, out of Michael’s reach. I did survive hurricane Ivan in 2004 though, the eye wall passed 12 miles to the west of here, and the result was catastrophic, so I can relate.

We’re survivors. God let us live through this, so we can encourage others. Your poem, “The Valley Of Death”, made me lift my hands in praise. There is more than one context this po

Still more to be said

We have a friend with a RV park on the panhandle. We were able to help her and this book reminds me so much of what she went though. Y y for sharing your stories. If the sight of Michael's destruction is not seen personally then people just can't grasp the destruction of it. Very well written,ty.

It's almost 2 years since Hurricane Michael hit the Florida panhandle and I'm sure there's still plenty to clean up. I live in the area hit by the Loma Prieta earthquake (1989) and the last "hole" caused by that quake in our downtown area was just developed this past year - 29 years later! Yet, as we celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the quake later this month I can still relate to the roller coaster of emotions displayed so viscerally in this text.

Filled with short essays, poetry, and photog

Excellent read

For those not impacted by Hurricane Michael, we only know what we saw and heard from the media. This book, full of first hand accounts and heartfelt poetry provides a gut wrenching insight into those terrifying hours during the storm as well as the heartfelt spirit of those very survivors in the aftermath of the storm.

I survived

Hurricane Michael was frightening and devastating. And the aftermath is unbelievable. The rest of the world has forgotten us but it will be years before we recover. Thanks for the stories and the pictures.
