I Survived the Galveston Hurricane, 1900: I Survived, Book 21 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The city of Galveston, Texas, was booming. Perched on an island off the southern coast of Texas, Galveston had been founded in the 1830s. By 1900, it was Texas' richest and most important city. Boats loaded up with American cotton and wheat steamed from Galveston to countries around the world. Arriving ships were crowded with immigrants. The streets, paved with crushed oyster shells, sparkled like they'd been sprinkled with diamonds.
True, this glittering city was prone to flooding. But just a few years before, a weather forecaster had said the idea of a hurricane striking Galveston was absurd. So when a storm started brewing on September 8, 1900, no one believed it would be any worse than previous storms. They gathered on the beach to cheer on the wild waves. But what started as entertainment soon turned into a nightmare as those wild waves crashed into the city. By morning, hundreds of homes were destroyed. Eight thousand people were dead. The city had all but disappeared.
In this thrilling installment of Lauren Tarshis' New York Times best-selling I Survived series, one child finds safety only to head back into the treacherous waters to make sure his neighbors are safe.

After reading this book, I honestly want to check out some of her other I Survived books. And I'm far from a 3rd-5th Grader, lol. I would highly encourage anyone in that 3rd grader to 5th grader range to read these books. Also, they'd make excellent gifts for kids of that age!
