Bottom of da Boot. Louisiana's Disappearing Coast. Signed
2012, 1st. ed. Atlanta. Fall Line Press. Hardback. No dustjacket as issued. xxiii + 104 pp., 26 x 25,50 cm. Condition: Fine = as new. To date, little has been done to reverse the long-term devastation caused by the oil and gas industries to the coast of Louisiana. The official response tends to focus on short-term crisis management while political and funding obstructions on the state and federal levels interfere with long-term, science-based restoration, regulation and prevention. In the face of astonishing challenges, many people on the Louisiana coast cling stubbornly to their homes and a disappearing land that they love. These photographs explore the relationships among the human and natural landscape, the impact of environmental degradation, and the identities and cultures of the people who struggle to maintain a way of life on the coast.
