Reviews

Narrated with gusto . . . [Puleo's] enthusiasm for a little-known catastrophe is infectious. --The New Yorker

"Compelling . . . Puleo has done justice to a gripping historical story."--Ralph Ranalli, Boston Globe

"Thoroughly researched . . . weaves together the stories of the people and families affected by the disaster, with often heartbreaking glimpses of their fates . . . The cleanup lasted months, the lawsuits years, the fearful memories a lifetime." --Randolph E. Schmid, Associated Press

"Giving a human face to tragedy is part of the brilliance of Stephen Puleo's Dark Tide . . . Until they were given voice in this book, the characters who drove the story were forgotten." --Caroline Leavitt, Boston Sunday Globe
