On September 7, 1804, Charleston, South Carolina was devastated by one of the worst hurricanes of the 19th century. In this 30-page short story, thirteen-year-old Michael Lautrec confronts the storm as he searches for his father in the city streets and on its wharves, not realizing he and his mother are also in danger, and that this day will change his life. Based on first-person accounts of the storm, The Charleston Hurricane of 1804 is a story complete in itself - but is also the prequel to Seaward Born, Lea Wait's novel which tells the rest of Michael's adventures. Ann Rinaldi called Seaward Born "Thoroughly absorbing! It held me from beginning to end." Award-winning author and historian Lea Wait will pull you into the past, its dangers, and its challenges.
