About the Author:

Laurence Yep is the acclaimed author of more than sixty books for young people and a winner of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award. His illustrious list of novels includes THE JOUNRAL OF WONG MING-CHUNG, A CHINESE MINER; the Newbery Honor Books DRAGONGWINGS and DRAGON'S GATE from the Golden Mountain Chronicles; The Tiger's Apprentice trilogy; THE DRAGON AWAKES: THE SAN FRANSCISCO FIRE OF 1906; and THE DRAGON'S CHILD: A STORY OF ANGEL ISLAND, which he cowrote with his niece, Dr. Kathleen S. Yep.

Mr. Yep lives in Pacific Grove, California, with his wife.

From AudioFile:

As a single American bomber flies high over the quiet city of Hiroshima, the air-raid warning sounds as it has too many times before, and 12-year-old Sachi heads for cover. When the B-29 continues past, Sachi emerges. Moments later when the warning sounds again for the Enola Gay, the B-29 carrying the first atomic weapon ever used in war, no one has the time or inclination to run for cover, and all, including Sachi, are caught. Trapped in the sweep of this terrible event, Sachi and her story are woven into a background of information about the bomb that is both gripping and objective. The characters help to personalize this most impersonal of assaults on humanity. Runger's reading is concerned but emotionally balanced, a good mix for a book that is as much facts as narrative. His almost objective tone, faithful to Yep's intention, leaves all judgment to the reader, thus serving as a good introduction to the nuclear age for listeners of all ages. P.E.F.
