San Miguel (also known as Chaparrastique) is one of the most active volcanoes in El Salvador. On January 12, 2016, Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensors on NASA’s Aqua and Terra satellites acquired these natural-color images of ash streaming from the mountain. Terra captured the upper image at 10:35 a.m. local time (16:35 Universal Time); Aqua captured the lower image at 1:35 p.m. local time (19:35 Universal Time). Winds transported the volcanic plume to the southwest.

Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How it Changed America

Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How it Changed America

  • Trade paperback with scenes of the flood. 5×10 inces 524 pages

An American epic of science, politics, race, honor, high society, and the Mississippi River, Rising Tide tells the riveting and nearly forgotten story of the greatest natural disaster this country has ever known — the Mississippi flood of 1927. The river inundated the homes of nearly one million people, helped elect Huey Long governor and made Herbert Hoover president, drove hundreds of thousands of blacks north, and transformed American society and politics forever.
A New York Times Notable Book of the Year, winner of the Southern Book Critics Circle Award and the Lillian Smith Award.When Mother Nature rages, the physical results are never subtle. Because we cannot contain the weather, we can only react by tabulating the damage in dollar amounts, estimating the number of people left homeless, and laying the plans for rebuilding. But as John M. Barry expertly details in Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America, some calamities transform much more than the landscape.

While tracing the history of the nation’s most destructive natural disaster, Barry explains how ineptitude and greed helped cause the flood, and how the policies created to deal with the disaster changed the culture of the Mississippi Delta. Existing racial rifts expanded, helping to launch Herbert Hoover into the White House and shifting the political alliances of many blacks in the process. An absorbing account of a little-known, yet monumental event in American history, Rising Tide reveals how human behavior proved more destructive than the swollen river itself.
