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. (Mar.) --Staff (Reviewed March 11, 2013) (Publishers Weekly, vol 260, issue 10, p)
