Summary

Summary

The rain would not stop. The waters kept rising. Would the levees hold? Would the Mississippi and Missouri rivers overflow their banks? As nine states in the Midwest experienced floods, thousands of people lost their homes. Some lost their lives. This book describes the courage and the heartbreak of people who faced the deadly deluge.
