My review: I don't know if you've read any books by Jerry Borrowman, but if you haven't yet, do! I love the way that he writes, usually historical fiction, but this book was a treat to read as well.
I loved that Jerry Borrowman talks about things that I have heard about my whole life, but never really understood. Things like the Teton Dam and the Yellowstone area. I grew up in the same area of Idaho as Jerry Borrowman did, and people would talk about the Teton Dam flood and I really just couldn't picture in my mind what had happened. But that happens to be one of the articles in this book and I really enjoyed reading about it and now I can kind of picture and understand a little bit what would have happened.
There are plenty of other really interesting stories in this book. Each of them is well-written, well-researched and interesting to read. I learned tons of things from this book! I loved every minute that I was reading it!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
