Synopsis

Tsunami Man Learning About Killer Waves with Walter Dudley by Anthony D. Fredericks

For Dr. Walter Dudley tsunamis are not just about devastation and destruction, they are about men, women, and children. Dr. Dudley's work has expanded our knowledge of these waves and has helped us to better understand and prepare for these unpredictable, yet ever present, dangers. In Tsunami Man young readers are given an inside look at the life of a working scientist who uses his knowledge for the common good and serves as an exciting role model for future scientists. Filled with dramatic photographs and accounts of tsunami survivors, the book also addresses the how and why of tsunamis, their impact on human lives, and the ways in which information about these killer waves is shared throughout the world.
