OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. -- Nathan Gates lies awake most nights, trying to hold onto the dreams of his past: the woman he would have married, the small home they would have shared and the contracting business he hoped to get off the ground. Lately, those dreams have been slipping away, eclipsed by the stark reality of life in a cramped, 288-square-foot trailer at a small encampment in the salt marshes of the Mississippi coast. Surrounded by a wildlife refuge that's swarming with gnats, where alligators bask in the sun a hundred yards from his room, this tiny trailer has become a critical lifeline.

OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. - If you were to somehow retrace Katrina's steps and ease your way over the Gulf of Mexico and past the shoreline, you'd see a woman laying clothes, bed linens and family photographs on the ground to dry. One street away, a man, his daughter and a neighbor are taking the insides of a home and piling it into a cluttered mess near the road. From above, you'd see officers help with traffic, and people coming in and out of makeshift tent cities that line Highway 90. But once you get just a mile inland, you'd look down below and notice a large field of grass where a football team - more than five dozen players - is taking a knee.

Along 26 miles of coastal Highway 90 between Biloxi and Waveland on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Katrina's devastation could be seen everywhere this month - countless steps leading to empty foundations. But, there was also something else - trees. Live oaks, many well over 100 years old, still stand, now shading FEMA trailers. These gangly giants are an enduring feature of the coast. They survived Katrina as they did Camille and dozens of other storms. In Ocean Springs, I came across a house that looked on the verge of collapse.

Along most of America's coastline, crustaceans get boiled. Sometimes in plain old Yankee water. Sometimes in spicy Cajun stock. Whatever the liquid, there's a whole pot of it bubbling away. Whatever the seafood - Maine lobster, Carolina blue crab, Louisiana crawfish - it takes the plunge. And that's just wrong. Ask anyone in Maryland, where there's just one way to cook a crab. That way is steaming. "I think we're pretty much the main steamers as far as I know," said John Shields, chef-owner of Gertrude's restaurant and author of several books on coastal cooking, including "The Chesapeake Bay Crab Cookbook.
