THE JOHNSTOWN FLOOD

by | Read by Edward Herrmann

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1968

One of the United States' most highly regarded popular historians, David McCullough, and one of the best narrators of audiobooks, Edward Herrmann-- an AUDIOFILE Golden Voice--together create an excellent production. The story told by McCullough and brought to life in Herrmann's sonorous voice is a gripping tale. In May 1889, Johnstown, nestled in the mountains of central Pennsylvania, was ravaged by a terrible flood, which killed over 2,200 people. The flood was not simply a product of nature. The primary culprit was a dam then owned by an association whose members included some great American industrialists, including Andrew Carnegie. The dam broke, and a wave of unimagined destruction passed through the valley. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
