Louisiana Blue (Tiller Galloway Thriller #3)

by David Poyer

In Louisiana Blue, black sheep Lyle "Tiller" Galloway, broke and on the run from his Colombian ex-employers, leaves Hatteras Island for Louisiana's Gulf Coast. He worked its oil rigs before, years ago, doing the toughest, most dangerous kind of diving, under conditions that used men up and sometimes killed them. But the pay and the things it bought-women, drugs, booze, and freedom-were worth the risk. Now he's ten years older. Robots do the deep diving, and work's hard to find for a man with a prison record. Then a call from a little-known outfit named DeepTech leads Tiller to Pandora 2000, an enormous rig far out in the Gulf of Mexico. He'll be working a thousand feet down, with a mixed crew of ex-cons, loners, and renegades, developing a major oilfield with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake. But something's wrong. A fatal crash, another man's wife, the strain and danger of saturation diving, a greedy, unscrupulous boss...it begins to add up. And when Galloway gets an unusually lucrative offer, he can't turn it down. Even though his choice may end in catastrophe-not only for himself, but for the whole Gulf Coast.

Louisville

by John Findling

Founded in 1778 as a portage point on the lower Ohio River, Louisville was closely tied to river commerce for a century. In the 1880s, the Southern Exposition and the growth of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad did much to establish the city as an important commercial link between the North and South. By 1900, Louisville was the 18th largest city in America, with a population of just over 200,000. The city had a vibrant downtown with elegant office buildings and hotels and one of the finest park systems in the country, designed by the Olmsted brothers in the 1890s. In Louisville, more than 200 postcards present a visual record of the institutions, prosperity, and charm of the river city.

Louisville in World War II

by Bruce M. Tyler State Representative Owens

With the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941, Louisville mobilized to fight Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. Citizens of all races and economic classes united in the effort, both abroad and at home. Louisville's many industries banded together as well: the Mengel Company made wood products used in the war, and its staff burned a Nazi flag in an employee-held rally; Reynolds Aluminum Company manufactured arms and other war materials; Liberty National Bank sold war bonds at special windows; and the Louisville Ford Motor Company made at least 93,389 military jeeps out of the roughly 500,000 employed in the war. Perhaps Louisville's most significant war contribution, though, was the use of Bowman Field as a United States Army Air Corps Detachment Squadron. The pilots trained there were vital to the war effort.
