About this book

Tells the dramatic story of the people of Chatham, Massachusetts, the location of a dramatic rise in sea level, and how they battled to survive this sudden and unexpected disaster. It interweaves the stories of homeowners whose houses were swept away and the fishermen whose livelihoods were threatened, with the public brawls that erupted between dedicated scientists, environmental bureaucrats, law enforcement agencies and attorneys.
