Overview

Eight years after the Louisiana Purchase, the western frontier of the United States extended only to the Mississippi River. There in the soggy inhospitable Delta of today's Missouri Bootheel, hardscrabble pioneers suddenly found themselves fighting for their lives against horrendous odds.
The Great New Madrid Earthquakes of 1811-12 left death and unimaginable destruction in their wake. Nuetzel chronicles the terror witnessed through the eyes of panicked victims as he recounts Vade Boncoeur's struggle for his family's survival.
But could it happen today? Nuetzel firmly believes that it will and he guides us through the sobering and shocking consequences of a twenty first century Armageddon.
