When elephant-sized chunks of steam locomotive began raining down into the packed stands, the extravaganza quickly unraveled into one of the most confounding tragedies. This notorious incident slipped into the back pages of Texas lore, but Mike Cox tells the full story of the Crash at Crush. Paperback. 223 pages. B&W images. Interesting.
