Disasters

Disasters are inherently frightening, riveting, and involving. Manmade and natural disasters—grabbed straight from the headlines—leave tragedy, destruction, and for the survivors, years of anguish. This nonfiction series was written with striving readers in mind. The high-interest stories detail all types of disasters. Each nonfiction title contains six to eight in-the-news stories, black and white photographs, fact boxes and tables, glossary, timelines, maps, and index.
