Based on real events, this story shows how a team of international volunteers worked together to save priceless artifacts after a flood.

"Lee's scenes of tumultuous waves washing down city streets amply convey a sense of the widespread devastation to go with Greenwald's vivid descriptions of the wreckage." --Booklist

When the Arno River floods the city of Florence, Italy in 1966, it leaves slimy, smelly mud everywhere. A young girl watches students from around the world, many from the US, help save the town's rare treasures, earning themselves the nickname Gli Angeli del Fango, the Mud Angels.
