About This Item

New York: Atlantic Monthly Press, 2005. Hardcover. Fine/Dust Jacket condition very good.

It struck with little warning and tremendous destructive power, causing widespread flooding in coastal areas and wiping out whole communities. Burns uses contemporary accounts and interviews with survivors to reconstruct an hour by hour account of the storm. 230 pages, b/w photo section. Light wear to jacket edges.
