Tsunami Diary by John Townsend


Tsunami Diary by John Townsend

On the morning of Boxing Day 2004, thousands of people were killed in seconds. Steve Hunter's world was turned upside down in his struggle to survive. Here in his diary, he tells his own story of when the sea ran wild.


This series can be used in many ways; on a one-to-one basis, as a general reader or as a classroom resource. Its versatility and attractiveness to students make me happy to recommend it. -- Special!
