Review: While salvaging and rebuilding in the aftermath of the Galveston Flood of 1900, 16 yr. old Seth proves himself in a way that his previous efforts never could, but she still must face his father man to man. This coming of age story is quick paced with sharp and focused descriptions. Fact and fiction are blended into Seth's narrative by using personal accounts and journals. This historical fiction has something for almost everyone.
