Book Details

Gertrude Quinn was only six years old when her world was changed forever. In a matter of minutes, she and thousands of other people in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, found themselves fighting for their lives in swirling water that covered their city. Gertrude Quinn was one of the lucky ones. She survived the great Johnstown Flood of 1889. More than 2,200 other people were not as lucky. They died in one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the United States. Even though more than 120 years have passed since this disaster, we can still learn important lessons from the Johnstown Flood. In this book you will find out how the South Fork Dam and heavy rainfall worked together to cause the flood. You will understand the flood better through the stories of people who survived, and see how the nation helped to rebuild the town.
