Inhaltsangabe: The most comprehensive account of the Great Blizzard of 1978 in New England, this book contains more than 130 dramatic photos from all across the region. Pictures range from the devastating flooding along the coast to the mountains of snow that paralyzed inland communities, including the 3,500 vehicles stranded on Route 128.
The record-setting storm's impact on the area is explored through first-hand accounts from survivors, relief workers and former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, among others.
Painstakingly researched and profusely illustrated, this book will stir memories of those who lived through the storm and will educate those too young to remember it.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of "Storm of the Century" will be donated to the Fort Revere Park & Preservation Society, a non-profit organization that supports the Fort Revere historic site and military history museum overlooking Boston Harbor in Hull, Mass.

Weather watchers may debate the merits of other storms that have buffeted the area, but none had the paralyzing effect of the bundle of weather that slammed in to the region like an out-of- Control freight train in February 1978. Record- breaking snow, with fall, near hurricane gusts of more than 100 miles per hour, 10-foot tides that splintered houses and reduced concrete sea walls to rubble. Never before, and never since, have all of these forces of nature combined to devastate New England. This is the definitive account of the Great Blizzard of 1978. It's impossible to tell every story of every person who lived through the Blizzard, but in these pages you'll experience the tragedy, the triumph, and even the humor from communities across New England. The author also makes a convincing case for the title of the book - that the storm was the most significant of the 20th century. What makes the blizzard truly the storm of the century is its aftermath. The entire states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut were shut down for days. Soldiers patrolled streets and enforced curfews. Thousands of cars were abandoned on highways, and thousands more people spent days in shelters. Landmarks that had withstood the tests of other storms toppled. Even Ash Wednesday was postponed. Neighbors pulled together to help each other in a show of extraordinary community spirit. Everybody who lived through blizzard remembers exactly where he or she was when the storm hit. Thoroughly researched and containing more than 125 dramatic photos, this book will stir memories of the blizzard, and will educate those too young to remember it. Contents in Six Chapters, The Elements of A Disaster, A Long Day's Journey Into Night, Dukakis The Calm Amid The Storm, Blizzard Vignettes Everyone Has A Story, Some Things Will Never Be The Same, and To Hull and Back Devastation Along The Coast.
