Synopsis

Witness To Disaster: Volcanoes by Dennis Fradin

In the first chapter of WITNESS TO DISASTER: VOLANOES, readers are given a sense of what happens when a volcano is born. The authors have gathered together eyewitness accounts of the Volcano Paricutin, which allows us to follow along from the first crack in the cornfield to the monumental growth of a mountain towering 2000 feet in the sky, spewing smoke and ash for years after its first explosion. The following chapters alternate history with science. Readers will learn why volcanoes explode, what kinds of volcanoes there are, what scientists are doing to help people avoid getting hurt, the worst/biggest/deadliest volcanoes in history, and much more. The ample backmatter will allow a student to easily find the information needed to complete a report.
