Texas Disasters

by Cox, Mike


Twenty true accounts of major disasters in Texas history are retold in this well-researched, engagingly written collection. In this part of the country tornadoes are a frequent threat. Residents have also experienced fires, floods, drought, blizzards, shipwrecks, and other devastating events, including a yellow fever epidemic in 1867, which earned that year the grim moniker "The Year of Death." This collection also includes personal reflections by the author, who was involved with the relocation of evacuees during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
