Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688139191, Hardcover)Nature's fury...and a family's strength
Sarajean has played by the Mississippi River all her life, so when she hears that it might overflow its banks and flood her home, she can't believe it! But the rain keeps falling, and the river continues to rise. Her family stacks sandbags around the house's foundation and moves upstairs. For a while Sarajean has fun pretending she's camping out -- but then the levee breaks.... Using the devastating Midwest floods of 1993 as their backdrop, best-selling author Mary Calhoun and award-winning illustrator Erick Ingraham tell the poignant story of a young girl who discovers what is truly important during a time of trouble.
