‘On the Hurricane Coast’ By Douglas Lee Interview On KPEL
Writer, filmmaker and photographer Doug Lee was interviewed recently by KPEL's Ken Romero and discussed his latest book. 'On The Hurricane Coast' is available at www.amazon.com and chronicles the history and survival of an older Gulf Coast. From the the Florida panhandle to Galveston Bay Doug Lee looks at the people who have survived and the changes the land has been through. Having lived on the Gulf Coast for many years Lee now lives in Colorado but has many ties to present-day Louisiana.
Since embarking on his free lance career in 1992, he has written and co-produced natural history documentary films for National Geographic Television, aired to four-star reviews around the world. 'Elephant Orphans—A Family of Their Own' (National Geographic International Channels 2003) is about trained safari elephants and the mahouts who share their lives in the wild heart of the Okavango Delta. 'Snakes: Africa's Deadly Dozen', based around Lee's ground-breaking writing about black mambas, premiered in the U.S. on NGTV in August, 2000, and was shown to acclaim on all global NGTV International markets.
