The Twenty Eight
This book is dedicated to the twenty-eight victims of the 1959 Yellowstone earthquake, and their families. Nineteen of those people still lie beneath the 300 foot deep slide. A 7.5 magnitude earthquake shook an 8,000 foot mountain loose, splitting it in half and sending a landslide of dirt, rocks, boulders and pine trees cascading down like a waterfall in the moonlight. The slide crushed cars, tents and trailers in a matter of minutes and it forever changed many lives.
