More Info on This Book: The Great Ohio River Flood of 1937

Frances Chapman was only 7-years-old when she witnessed The Ohio River Flood of 1937.

"You couldn't see anything, really. Only water, water, and just the tops of buildings," said Chapman.

Huntington author James Casto is now passing down the history and memories of that devastating time to other generations through his new book.

"The 1937 Flood was the Katrina of it's time," said Casto.

Casto even used the online auction website E-Bay to find some of these 200 images.

"I've totally been bitten by the local history bug. I'm still researching, still learning and still writing," said Casto.

Casto said he hopes his new book gives readers an appreciate for the flood control measures that developed after the flood.

"The Great Ohio River Flood of 1937" will be available starting Monday, February 16, 2009 at area bookstores, independent retailers and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at 1-888-313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.
