The Flood : Surviving The Deluge

ISBN: 9781910723203

Author: Michael Brown    Publisher: Merlin Unwin Books

What is it like to experience a flood? The answers that Michael Brown comes up with are surprising. His house was underwater for several weeks during the inundation of the Somerset Levels. He decided to stay on through it, and he was amazed at the ensuing chain of events as he, along with his local community, first fought the water, pumping and sweeping and panicking – then came acceptance of the inevitable defeat, and finally there came an unexpected wealth of emotions as the waters – and the locals – had to settle into a strange and ultimately rewarding state of marooned calm. This well-written series of highlights of Michael’s diary are very real: the account is funny, observant, honest and unpredictable.
