Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The 'Johnstown Flood' of 1889 survives as a dimly recalled phrase, but memory of the actual scope of the catastrophe has faded with time. In 'Wade in the Water', Michael Oates brings the drama and tragedy of the flood back with immediate, wrenching impact. Told through the eyes of memorable characters whose personal struggles are instantly erased by the immensity of the disaster, Oates conveys the terror of that horrible moment with meticulous historical accuracy. -- John M. Adams Historian, Author of The Millionaire and the Mummies. Codice inventario libreria

Riassunto: It is spring in the year 1889, and Americans are enjoying the spoils of an industrial revolution, but in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, the wheels of industry are brought to a grinding halt when the River Fork dam bursts.   Bennett Marsh, a nineteen-year-old kitchen-hand, wants nothing more than to leave his home town of River Fork and attend the Julliard School of Music in New York.  Bennett's father, Percival, a steel-mill worker lured by the glamour of high society, is trapped in a dead-end job, and struggles to find his place as parent and provider.  John Parke, the resident engineer at the River Fork Fishing and Hunting Club, questions the integrity of the dam while his gadabout wife and upper crust club members wine and dine around him in ignorant bliss.  When a storm out of Kansas inundates the valley with torrential rain, Parke's greatest fear comes true. Twenty million tons of water spill into the Allegheny Valley, devastating the lives of the 30,000 people living below it. When the dam breaks, Bennett and Percival must count on each other to survive the flood, realizing the bond between them and the strength they take from each other, but it may have come too late.

About the Author: Born in Dallas, Texas, and moved to California in 1973, Oates graduated from the California State University in Fullerton in 1992 with a Masters degree in Business Administration and a Minor in Music. Over the past sixteen years, he has grown his southwestern style restaurant into a thriving fixture in his home town of Fullerton, and has been recognized for his achievements in the industry by California State Senator Mimi Walters and U.S. Congressman Ed Royce.
