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.

    " One of the more mesmerizing pieces of modern non-fiction, this story of the great Mississippi flood of 1927 (one of the worst natural disasters in American history) is a captivating social history in its own right; when examined against the recent tragedy of Katrina, it is a sobering reminder that natural disasters are frequently only exacerbated by human actions. "
