Reviews - What do customers think about Flood : Mississippi 1927?
Good Book! Jan 25, 2006
Another thriller from the SURVIVAL! series. These historical survival adventures are awesome. This book isn't as action-packed as the others, but it held particular interest to me becuase I'm of African-American descent like Molly and this adventure is set in just a turbulent time of history. I like that Garrett and Molly are best friends despite their skin color, and I like the fact they they fight together to survive the flood and get out alive.
Another great book from the Survival series. Aug 6, 2000
Most people think it's odd that Garrett Wood and Molly Bride are best friends. The place is Mississippi, the year 1927, and Garrett is white while Molly is black. But they ignore what everyone else says and remain friends. They're united in their dreams of getting away from their dreary lives on cotton farms. For some time now they've been saving money in a jar in the bayou. When the rising waters of the Mississippi threaten to put the bayou underwater, Garrett and Molly set out on their little homemade raft to retrieve the money. But instead, they end up being swept down the river. They encounter dangerous currents filled with debris, poisonous snakes, and storms. Their journey will truly test their courage and friendship. An excellant survival story with historical details about life in the south in the 1920s.
Another exciting, page turning Survival! book. Jun 18, 1998
Molly Bride and Garrett Wood are both from poor families barely making a living on Mississippi cotton farms in 1927. Molly and Garrett dream of getting away from Mayersville, their little home town. So for three years, they've been saving up nickels and pennies and hiding them in a secret place. But the rising, raging Mississippi threatens the money, and Molly and Garrett go to retrieve it. But the current wins, and they find themselves headed up the turbulent Mississippi on a little homemade raft. Can Molly and Garrett survive? I couldn't put this book down! The part with the water moccasin was so scary, I felt as if I was there. A very, very exciting book!
