Paperback. New. Brand New.

Synopsis

An American epic of science, politics, race, honor, high society, and the Mississippi River, Rising Tide tells the riveting and nearly forgotten story of the greatest natural disaster this country has ever known -- the Mississippi flood of 1927. The river inundated the homes of nearly one million people, helped elect Huey Long governor and made Herbert Hoover president, drove hundreds of thousands of blacks north, and transformed American society and politics forever. A New York Times Notable Book of the Year, winner of the Southern Book Critics Circle Award and the Lillian Smith Award.

Reviews

On Feb 23 2017, a reader said:
I found this book to be absolutely fascinating. I had not known about the 1927 Mississippi River flood. The details of this work are completely engrossing. When you have explained to you the true magnitude of the event you find it difficult to believe that people could have survived such a cataclysmic event. If you have any interest in history, get this book. You will find it difficult to put down.
