"12 Photolithographs (heavily retouched), 3 Chromolithographs. The photographs are by T.H. O'Sullivan and William Bell. These views, typical of the toned photolithograph published in government reports, are striking scenes of the western landscape, translated to this medium with a great deal of graphic richness. This book is also of prime importance because it lists every photographer for every one of the government's surveys."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 100

Rising tide : the great Mississippi flood of 1927 and how it changed America by John M Barry( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Rising Tide begins in the nineteenth century, when the first serious attempts to control the river began. The story focuses on engineers James Eads and Andrew Humphreys, who hated each other. Out of the collision of their personalities and their theories came a compromise river policy that would lead to the disaster of the 1927 flood yet would also allow the cultivation of the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta and create wealth and aristocracy, as well as a whole culture. In the end, the flood had indeed changed the face of America, leading to the most comprehensive legislation the government had ever enacted, touching the entire Mississippi valley from Pennsylvania to Montana. In its aftermath was laid the foundation for the New Deal of Franklin D. Roosevelt
