Summary
"The hurricane that pounded Galveston through the night of September 8, 1900, reduced a cosmopolitan and economically vibrant city to a wreckage-strewn wasteland where survivors struggled without shelter, power, potable water, or even the means to communicate their plight to the mainland." "As the centennial of the 1900 Storm prompts remembrance and reassessment, this account completes the story of America's deadliest natural disaster and places Galveston's experience within the broader context of the national Progressive movement, the history of technology and the environment, and women's history."--Jacket
