But in April 1997 that is precisely what happened. Flood Stage and Rising tells the story of that month-long disaster from the point of view of one who lived through it - fighting the flood shoulder-to-shoulder with her neighbors, watching in horror as the water breaks the dikes, fleeing the city only to see, via newscasts, her town burst into flames at the height of the flood - and finally working to put her own and Grand Fork's life back together." "As she chronicles North Dakota's disastrous winter and spring - and the tortuous recovery process that continues to this day - Jane Varley gives us a shocking, moving picture of the reality behind the headline news that riveted the nation."--BOOK JACKET." ;
