The book features stories of the 1965, 2003 and 2008 floods in Henderson County as told by those who experienced them.

These personal stories and pictures document the courage, fortitude, and resourcefulness of county residents from a small child to veteran flood survivors.

Also featured are copies of Henderson County Reads book selection for 2011-2012 , Isaac's Storm by Eric Larson; this book chronicles the calamity, the 1900 Galveston, Texas hurricane that reduced the city from the largest in Texas to a decimated landscape of rubble killing 8,000 residents.
