Timed to coincide with the flood's 75th anniversary, "The Thousand-Year Flood" is the first comprehensive history of one of the most destructive disasters in American history. Welky first shows how decades of settlement put Ohio Valley farms and towns at risk and how politicians and planners repeatedly ignored the dangers. Then he tells the gripping story of the river's inexorable rise. 384 pp. 7,500 print.
