Summary
This is an entertaining history of the island and the city from the earliest Indian visitors to the fury of Hurricane Alicia. A pirate stronghold and haven for smugglers, Galveston once enjoyed the distinction of being Texas' largest and wealthiest city, and then suffered a disastrous hurricane, the worst natural disaster in the history of our country. After the terrible 1900 storm, Galvestonians rebuilt their city and even raised the elevation of the island
