    How did the colonists of Jamestown and Maryland live and die? Forensic anthropology provides an incredible array of answers. Scientists can look into a grave and determine the skeleton's gender, age at time of death, nationality, and sometimes even economic standing within minutes. Laboratory studies can provide cause of death information.

    This audio book was so boring for the first few chapters that I almost gave up on it. It got more interesting after the first few chapters but was still pretty slow.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    This book was truly inspiring and very intense. I was totally captivated by the harrowing journey of the main characters. It's amazing what human beings can endure! It was very well performed. I am easily bored and this book kept my full attention all the way through.

    Story

    This book was fantastic. It was engaging all the way through. I fell in love with Shadow in the first chapter and felt connected to him all the way through. This book has a special way of engaging with the listener. In most book( especially long ones) I get bored or I stay tuned because i feel compelled to know how it turns out. This book was engaging in a really different way. I wasn't so concerned about 'how it turns out' but was very evenly and consistency engaged with the story and the characters. I have never experienced a book like that before. I enjoyed every chapter, every minute of it!

    The performances were great, especially the main characters. The woman who played shadow's wife was pretty flat and boring but the rest were great.

    September 8, 1900, began innocently in the seaside town of Galveston, Texas. Even Isaac Cline, resident meteorologist for the U.S. Weather Bureau, failed to grasp the true meaning of the strange deep-sea swells and peculiar winds that greeted the city that morning. Mere hours later, Galveston found itself submerged in a monster hurricane that completely destroyed the town and killed over 6,000 people in what remains the greatest natural disaster in American history.

    I really enjoyed this short book. It was compelling and sad. I love Erick Larson's gift for making history read like a novel. This book was not as good as some of his others but was a enjoyable listen.
