    Story
    (230)

    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.

    Greg Mefford says: "A wonderful listen"

    Overall

    Well written, gripping story of the disastrous 1900 Galveston hurricane with a great deal of general information on hurricanes and their forecasting. Strikes eerie parallels with Hurricane Katrina. Makes you wonder if it is possible for us to learn from history. We should certainly give it a try. Just in that context, the book is well worth listening to.

    Overall

    It is hard to imagine what one might use this for. Just random lists of words spoken quickly and often unintelligbly.
