A very well written book regarding the biggest natural disaster in American history. It could have been a fictional novel the way it is written and the immense tragedy that bestowed the people of Johnstown PA. It is certainly more interesting if you are familar with the area. A good non fiction read.
I read this book for one of my book clubs.I learned a lot about this town and the flood that happened.I still think about this book even though I read it a while ago.It was very informative and I couldn't put the book down.I never knew that much about the flood until I read this book.I highly recommend it.It also gives you history on the town also and the people who lived there.
