Publisher's Description

Twenty true accounts of major disasters in Texas history are retold in this well-researched, engagingly written collection. In this part of the country tornadoes are a frequent threat. Residents have also experienced fires, floods, drought, blizzards, shipwrecks, and other devastating events, including a yellow fever epidemic in 1867, which earned that year the grim moniker "The Year of Death." This collection also includes personal reflection by the author, who was involved with the relocation of evacuees during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Author Bio

Mike Cox is the author of a dozen books on Texas history and other subjects. He was the communications manager for the Texas Department of Transportation while Texas absorbed hundreds of thousands of evacuees during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Before that, he spent fifteen years with the Texas Department of Public Safety as a public information officer and was a newspaper reporter--all good research for writing about disasters and rescue efforts in Texas.
