"If you're thinking of skipping this book because of its quirky topic, please think again. Circle back and come on in, because this work details a slice of American history that is fascinating, terrifying, and timely, given the storms that have hit the Midwest in the past two years. Andrew Garman does a terrific job with the narration. He reads with a deep, assured voice that he varies to make the book interesting. Garman knows when to quicken his pace and when to let his words linger, with the result that we are drawn into the story and stay emotionally connected to it. Without doing character voices he brings the key people to life so we can grasp their monumental contributions to our lives today. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
