From the Inside Flap:

This book takes readers through dramatic, heart-wrenching accounts of nine Texas disasters from the past--and one looming in the future. Starting with the Columbia falling from the sky on a quiet morning, Sizer reaches back to past catastrophies and re-creates events so that readers experience the tragedy, heroism, and human resilience in the face of tornadoes, explosions, hurricanes, and the Waco Branch Davidian inferno.

Eileen Mattei of the Valley Morning Star calls Sizer "the queen of Texas pop history."
