The many personal tragedies and triumphs come to light in this full and thrilling account that is made even more evocative and jolting by its profusion of photographs taken immediately after the disaster. In the storm, S. W. Clinton lost his wife and six children, including two sons he could not save from drowning before his very eyes. Yet others survived. Long engaged, Ernest A. Mayo and Bessie Roberts decided it was better to face the daunting tasks ahead of them together, and were married a mere five days after the flood. Their stories, and the stories of all who survived the great Galveston Hurricane of 1900, attest to humanity's ability to overcome even the most horrific of disasters.
