"Logan's Storm tracks the epic journey of Logan LaBauve, Meely's widowed father, and Chilly Cox, a black teenager accosted by the police for his "crime" of rescuing Meely from a bully. As they flee the law through the Great Catahoula Swamp and along the lonely byways of Mississippi, Logan and Chilly fight hunger, foul weather, ravenous insects, and predators of all kinds - including an erudite grifter and a swamp-dwelling madwoman whose son practices a bizarre form of taxidermy - before Chilly finds safety with relatives." "Still haunted by the fact that he had to leave Meely behind in order to escape, Logan heads down to Florida to lay low himself, accompanied by Annie Ancelet, an angel of mercy who gave him temporary shelter. But when a killer hurricane rumbles out of the gulf, Logan is forced to make harrowing choices that could cost him his life - or the lives of those suddenly thrust into his care."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
