Review:

Jim Squires Los Angeles Times An important contribution to history and literature.

Tom Wicker This is the kind of history I love -- the brilliantly told story of the great Mississippi flood of 1927, a disaster for millions but the making of a future president and a turning point for the nation.

T.H. Watkins The New York Times Book Review Extraordinary...Rising Tide stands not only as a powerful story of disaster but as an accomplished and important social history, magisterial in its scope and fiercely dedicated to unearthing truth.

From the Publisher:

Jonathan Yardley in The Washington Post, 4/28/97
"Rising Tide" is a big, ambitious book that is not merely engrossing and informative but also has the potential to change the way we think, and thus the way we act, about great rivers and the waters that run through them....This is, no kidding, breathtaking stuff;..."Rising Tide" is splendid and informative reading.
