This chapter describes the project, Surviving Katrina and Rita in Houston, which collected accounts of the transforming endurance of the survivors and the heroism of Houstonians. The project employed survivors to record each other’s experiences of disaster. The survivors themselves acted both as interviewers and interviewees. The great strength of the project was in the common bond established when one survivor listens respectfully to the story of another.

Keywords:   Hurricane Katrina, Houston, heroism, disaster survivors, interviews
