Synopsis

Witness to Disaster Droughts by Judy Fradin

In the first chapter of Witness to Disaster: Droughts , readers are dropped into the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, an epic disaster that is thoroughly documented in words and pictures. What will startle readers is how far-reaching this disaster was, both in terms of the number of lives touched in the 30s and in the impact it had both on our society and in the scientific community, then and now. This first chapter is followed by chapters which alternate history with science. Historically documented droughts takes us around the world to see how drought has affected a wide variety of people and communities. The science of droughts looks at what we learned from the Dust Bowl about farming and the importance of topsoil. The final chapter looks ahead to introduce the latest tools and technologies being developed to try to make droughts survivable, if not beatable. The ample backmatter will allow a student to easily find the information needed to complete a report.
