Long after the blinding flash of media attention dimmed, the town of Walkerton, Ontario was forced to deal with the aftermath of a crippling E. coli outbreak. Ranking with Eastern Ontario's great ice storm, the Walkerton water tragedy was the worst crisis of its kind in Canadian history. It resulted in death, illness, financial loss and paranoia. Don't Drink the Water: The Walkerton Tragedy details the events of this disaster; sympathizes with victims and examines what went wrong. Telling this incredible story with a creative journalistic approach, Brenda Lee Burke brings personal experience to her writing and demonstrates the strength of the Walkerton community as it pulled together in a time of great need. Don't Drink the Water includes 14 pages of exclusive Walkerton area photographs. Please visit the author's website at www.dont-drink-the-water.com
