Walk Through Fire, by Yasmine S. Ali

Staff Pick

In February 1978, a train derailment and gas explosion nearly destroyed the tiny town of Waverly, Tennessee. Yasmine Ali, whose parents were the emergency doctors triaging the unimaginable injuries at Waverly's small hospital, describes in up-close and personal detail how this train trauma rewrote America's rail safety protocols, emergency response systems, and rural health care delivery. Her book makes it crystal clear why investing in infrastructure matters.
