The Secrets of Carter House is an engaging tale of contemporary black academics carving out their own heroic space in history. It follows three mid-career Ph.D.’s as they grapple with questions of profession, family, and friendship at the onset of Hurricane Ike. Choices made by these women as the storm approaches the Texas Gulf Coast in September 2008 reveal as much about governance and public policy as they reveal about the women’s doubts, dreams, and desires.

The Collegiate Academic Bundle includes an e-book and a PDF. Internet access is required to fully engage textbook elements
