We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

On TV we watch our city where people navigate the river-streets in any way they can.... "Look." Max points. "it's Sarah's house." All I see is roof. In searing personal poems, Jane Kurtz explores what it's like to struggle through a flood and pull your life together afterward. Inspired by Kurtz's own flood experience, this tale is realistic and unforgettable. Not just a moving story of one girl's courage, "River Friendly, River Wild" is a tribute to everyone who's ever faced great loss.
