Wave Of Destruction by Erich Krauss

Wave Of Destruction

In this work of non-fiction, Erich Krauss chronicles the story of four Thai families from the small village of Nam Keam through the worst disaster to strike Thailand ever – the Tsunami of 2004.

This book is the perfect look at the tragedy that struck on the morning of December 26, 2004.  Getting to know the families – where they came from, how the couples met, how they struggled to find work and put food on the table – gave me a glimpse into a world we rarely see from the comfort of our Western homes.  My heart grieved for them even before the succession of giant waves hit their village.  I felt their sense of panic as they struggled to survive the Tsunami and their grief when they realized the extent of their loss.  I was angered at the injustice these locals suffered first, as medical staff chose to treat foreigners first, and second as looters and fraud artists took what was rightfully theirs.

Erich Krauss did an excellent job sharing the stories of these families and this terrible tragedy.  I highly recommend this book!
