Synopsis

Shaky Ground Earthquakes by Mary Colson

This book explains what happens when an earthquake strikes. Readers will find out why earthquakes happen and how people can prepare for and survive earthquakes. Case studies of recent earthquakes, including the December 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake which resulted in a tsunami, are examined to both explain the science of earthquakes and to convey the toll they take on people and land. Stunning colour photos, maps, diagrams, and fact boxes make this subject come alive.
