The Johnstown Flood

David McCullough won me over long over ago, so I was stunned to find that his first work was actually my favorite one yet. The Johnstown Flood is an epic story, the bursting of a dam built by millionaires outside a scrappy and quickly growing working class town, built alongside two rivers and that huge reservoir just up the valley. The cast of characters including Clara Barton, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Frick, and a stone bridge built in 1887 that survived the flood after facing extraordinary forces. What an American story.
