Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Why did I not know about this flood? Geoff Williams writes about the Great Flood of , a disaster that begins with tornadoes in Nebraska and ends with flooding and severe storms in many other states, most notably Indiana and Ohio. The flood was particularly hard on the city of Dayton, Ohio, but so many other towns and cities were swept away in the waters. Written in a timeline type narrative, the story of the flood moves at a fairly quick pace, going back and forth from Dayton to other parts of the Midwest documenting not only nature's fury, but people's reactions and actions which either saved them from certain death by drowning or swept them into the current, some never to be seen again.
The book has photos at the end of it, but I found many other online that gave me a better idea of the damage the weather and the flood caused. I had never heard of weather like this before. People on their rooftops in the rain and then the snow and freezing temperatures, while in other parts of the country severe springtime storms wreaked havoc, producing tornadoes and other severe weather. This book is quite insightful when it comes to the humanity of such a horrible disaster.
It gives the reader a glimpse of the past and what has changed and what hasn't over the last or so years when it comes to how man handles natural disasters. I grew up as the grandchild, and cousin of many relatives who survived the Dayton flood of Even in the 's and 60's my elder relatives would talk about it.
It was clearly a life changing experience.

They talked about it more than they did the Wright brothers who they knew. Flight was nothing compared to flood. Flight was dubious, flood was not. Previous reviewers are troubled by the author's style of presentation. In that he presents many locales and goes from one to the other.
However, he correctly tells us early in the narrative, that although all floods are seen and remembered as local. Particularly when there was no real national media; that this disaster was indeed national in nature. The presentation is such that it is as if you were sitting in FEMA center with reports coming in from areas able to report and silence from most others. The silence of course represents what became and always becomes the reconstructed tragedy. I read some other reviews of this book that were not very kind. I disagree with their assessment. This story of the flood captures the fear, tragedy, danger, and despair that comes with a flood.
If you have never seen a major river in a major flood, then this book comes as close as any when describing the emotions and environment connected to a flood. This book gave me flashbacks to the ohio river flood. I had to put it down once because I didn't want to read the chapter about children children drowning is terrible. Geoff Williams did an amazing job of researching a year old event, finding Real family tales of this horrific disaster. Trying to imagine an entire week of surging waters, never-ending rain, pitiless cold, and lives without communication or refrigeration would have been beyond me.
But thanks to Mr. Williams, it all became Reality. This is a genuine page-turning history, which gets tied into today in many facets. Very, very detailed, but I got confused as it was in chronological order and so in one chapter, a person would be introduced and mentioned several times over in other chapters, along with dozens of other people.
Definition of 'wash away'
I almost needed a flow chart! Even so, it was interesting and I read it start to finish, never having heard of the great flood of before this book. Definitely worth a read, but can be confusing at times. The states of Ohio and Indiana were the hardest hit, but many of the surrounding states were hit almost as hard. The author gives the reader hundreds of vignettes of the flood from a close-up perspective people in faced. The author gives the reader the intimate portraits of the victims, the rescuers, the press and the bystanders.
One important person in Dayton was James Patterson, founder of NCR and, recently convicted of anti-trust laws who saw what was happening and, immediately, set his factory up as a refugee center as well as setting his factory to the task of building boats. Patterson showed himself a community benefactor in Dayton. There are so many tales of miraculous rescues and, on the other side, heart-breaking deaths that the reader will get an real feel for what it was like in areas that were in the path of the flood. Men worked tirelessly to save their neighbors and fellow residents.
I was shocked by the number of people who died bravely trying to save others though their chances were obviously slim. It's a good read, but my criticism would be that there's no higher-level description of the event that was much larger than the vignettes show. There are no maps showing the extent of the floods and the view is very narrow and small. I would have liked to have seen the big picture laid out for the reader.
On the whole, though, this is a very good book on one of those iconic disasters that has, unfortunately, been forgotten. I enjoyed the read and I recommend it with four stars. Very good read, very interesting. I had never heard about the "Great Flood" in the spring of I've lived my whole life in Ohio and never new. Since reading about the great flood, I found out also in the fall of there was the "Great Lakes Blizzard" where many ships were lost.
