About the Author:

Sally Walker is the author of "Written in ""Bone", " ""Fossil Fish Found Alive", and "Secrets of a Civil War Submarine", which was awarded a Sibert Medal. She lives in Illinois.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6?A clearly written text and powerful full-color photographs make this a fascinating overview. Walker offers cogent explanations for how and where earthquakes occur, how scientists are working to predict them, and how to survive if one strikes. In addition to photographs, a number of informative charts and graphs extend the text. Damaging aftereffects such as tsunamis (destructive sea waves), landslides, and fires are also discussed. This book is informative enough for reports, yet readable and visually appealing to browsers. A good glossary and index are appended.?Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
