Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A comprehensive modern reference book all about disasters for expert readers.

In this exciting addition to Scholastic's Discover More series, follow a tornado chaser into the heart of a storm, track the path taken by a hurricane as it sweeps the Ocean, or find out which natural disaster is the world's worst killer. Easy-to-follow, step-by-step illustrations show how natural disasters occur and the destruction they wreak. Timelines show events unfolding minute-by-minute or hour-by-hour. Read eyewitness accounts from people who have lived to tell the tale and mind-blowing, up-to-the minute facts and figures.

Review:

"This addition to the Discover More series offers captivating photographs that show the effects of earthquakes, floods, avalanches, volcanic eruptions, and other events. Firsthand accounts from survivors, witnesses, and rescue workers offer an inside perspective on such recent disasters as the 2010 Haitian earthquake and Hurricane Katrina. Charts, graphs, sidebars, and digital illustrations demonstrate how tornados, hurricanes, and tsunamis form, and a section about how humans can cause natural disasters discusses global warming, overpopulation, and the spread of disease. Readers will gain a deeper understanding of both the complex conditions that cause disasters and of the lives that they affect. Ages 10 — 14." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
