內容簡介

Here is the story of encounters with Mother Nature on the trans-Mississippi West's prairies and plains. Upon this huge stage, particularly during the nineteenth century, was played out some of the planet's most intense weather events. The New Madrid Earthquakes of 1811 were some of the most devastating quakes ever recorded. Mighty thunderstorms rumbled across the prairies and plains accosting man and beast with tornadoes, hail, and floods. Lightning struck men dead, or it ignited prairie fires capable of overtaking the swiftest horse and rider. A tornado that ripped through St. Louis, Missouri killed more people than Custer lost at Little Big Horn. The Galveston Hurricane of 1900 remains the deadliest natural disaster to ever strike the nation. Rod Beemer's detailed compilation of historic events provides interesting insight into the obstacles these forefathers faced at the mercy of The Deadliest Woman in the West.
