NARRATOR: In the early 1930's few people had greater reason to curse nature than residents of the Tennessee River Valley. Every spring brought an onslaught from above. Up to six feet of rain pounded the valley each year, making it one of the wettest and flood-prone regions in North America.

Roy Talbert Jr.

Historian




Talbert: "The Great Tennessee River was a beautiful river, but it could be a deadly one. Engineers called it a "flashy" river and that meant it could rise from a relatively mild stream to a raging killer in a very short time.”
