Product Overview

An inspiring story of the epic 2008 floods?
and one devastated community?s will to rebuild


Every year, flooding wreaks havoc across much of the Midwest. But the floods of 2008 were on a scale unlike anything seen in generations. From Minnesota to Missouri, Illinois to Iowa, the ?Thousand Year Floods? of 2008?as some climatologists called them?caused tens of billions of dollars of damage. The human stories associated with this epic event that affected the Mississippi River and its tributaries are riveting.


The 1,000-Year Flood is a powerful tale of heroism, of heart-wrenching loss, and of hope. Looking at the epic events of the summer of 2008?and, in particular, at the devastated city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and its will to rebuild?Stephen Lyons weaves a compelling and inspiring narrative set against the backdrop of a millennium of natural disasters in the region. He asks: What does the flooding mean for residents who face it year after year? Are the affected areas ignored because they?re fly-over states?
