The Alstead Flood Feb 3, 2008
A remarkable book about the Cold River, New Hampshire flood of October, 2005 written, edited and designed by high school students. It's a highly professional volume with a heart-breaking poignancy.

Too Much Water Too Much Rain May 12, 2007
Very good grass-roots written account of an event that was traumatic for all the residents of a small New Hampshire town.
Excellent Overview with children's perspectives Jan 29, 2007
This was a truly exceptional story of a flood that arrived in a very small town in October 2005. The book has an excellent overview of the scientific and human factors (geology, meteorology, development, etc), that contributed to the flood but more importantly the story is told from a variety of perspectives through interviews resulting in fairly complete picture of what happened before, during, and after the flood. While the story is well told and the photographs beautiful, what makes this book unique is that children were interviewed and their perceptions, opinions, and perspectives are meaningful, touching, funny, and often right on target. By the end of the book not only did I have a satifying read but a real appreciation for how people come together in tragedy and crisis and how one major event can really impact a place long after the event is over.

This is an inspirational book and is a testament to the residents of Alstead NH and surrounding communities who survived the devastating floods of October 2005. I live only a short distance from Altead, but through this book I learned so much about this little town in Southwestern NH. The photographs and oral histories give the reader a real understanding of the magnitude of the flooding and the challenges faced in the recovery process.
