5:41: Stories from the Joplin Tornado and Spirit of Hope and have them arrive in time for Christmas.
5:41 includes first person stories from tornado survivors, full text of the messages given by President Obama, Gov. Jay Nixon, and Rev. Aaron Brown at the memorial service a week later, as well as essays and original reporting from co-author John Hacker and me.
Spirit of Hope also features tornado stories, but focuses as much or more on the recovery process and offers coverage right through the one-year anniversary.
Those looking for the complete story of the tornado from May 22, 2011, through the recovery will find no better sources.
