But dodging two-footed predators deep in the Cajun backwaters turns out to be the easy part. As Logan, accompanied by a newfound love interest, heads to Florida to lie low, a killer hurricane springs from the Gulf--and lives are suddenly on the line. Wells writes with Twain's flair for adventure and Welty's sense of place, making "Logan's Storm a trip through the heart and soul of a singular American character.
