ABOUT THE BOOK:

When Hurricane María made landfall in Puerto Rico in September 2017, it left no part of the archipelago unscathed. The hurricane triggered floods and mud-slides, washed out roads, destroyed tens of thousands of homes, farms, and businesses, caused the largest blackout in US history, knocked out communications, led to widespread food, drinking water, and gasoline shortages, and caused thou-sands of deaths. The seventeen oral histories collected in Mi María share stories of surviving the storm and its long aftermath as people waited for relief and aid that rarely arrived.
