Natural and man-made disasters have the power to destroy thousands of lives very quickly. Both as they unfold and in the aftermath, these forces of nature astonish the rest of the world with their incredible devastation and magnitude. In this collection of 10 well-known catastrophes such as the great Chicago fire, the sinking of the Titanic, and hurricane Katrina, Brenda Guiberson explores the causes and effects, as well as the local and global reverberations of these calamitous events. Each compelling account tells the story of destruction and devastation, and most especially, the power of mankind to persevere in the face of adversity.

    " Good longer school-age nonfiction about disasters. Covers the topics well enough for the age group without being too overbearing. Good inclusion of pictures. "

    " Lots of great information in a very readable style "

    " Though I have read of many of the ten covered in the book I still picked up new bits of information that I never knew or had forgotten. "

    " Interesting content for this disaster fan, servicable writing. I learned a few things, especially about the Dust Bowl, but nothing really fresh here. As I read this in galley, it will be interesting to see if the photos are better integrated into the text in the finished book. "

    " Could have been four or five stars had it not jumped from Johnstown Flood to Andrew Carnegie to Bill Gates! Many details I did not know about these well-known events made this an enjoyable read anyway. "
