"Wicked River: The Mississippi When It Last Ran Wild" by Lee Sandlin. A 2010 book so not the inspiration for Jay's New Madrid, Kahokian or Sultana but chock full of these stories. The feds first "major foray into disaster relief (was) after New Madrid....By then (decades later) a 'New Madrid claim' had become a byword throughout the river valley for legal chicanery and fraud".
