Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin' explores the intricacies of human nature, the strength and perseverance of the human spirit, and the efforts of every day American heroes. Set in the aftermath of the greatest natural disaster the United States has ever seen. A chance meeting between Cary Black and a volunteer worker returning form the region at the ATL Airport during a snowstorm led to a 4.5 year project, resulting in the book. The book illustrates the spirit of Americans and the strength and spirit of the people of the Gulf Coast. Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin' is the only book written to include the perspectives and stories of the New Orleans Fire Department Firefighters and other first responders, the FEMA volunteer firefighters, and the average, everyday citizens and survivors who mustered their courage did what was needed to be done when it needed to be done. The only book supported by the New Orleans Fire Department, Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin' is, in the words of the author: ...dedicated to memory of Captain Richard McCurley. McCurley was a member of the New Orleans Fire Department (NOFD), Engine 4. Captain McCurley was stationed at the Bell South Building in East New Orleans along with 32 of his fellow firefighters as Katrina struck. He survived Katrina and the difficult days and weeks that followed. Six weeks after Katrina, Capt. McCurley lost his life on a routine natural gas leak call so common after the storm. Capt. McCurley is remembered as a true hero of Katrina.
