Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Dramatic color photos and descriptive writing in this book will provide a realistic view of the power of ice storms. Author Ylvisaker describes how and why ice storms happen and the devastation they can cause. The first chapter begins with a personal story of a family in New York and how they dealt with the effects of an ice storm by manually taking care of their cattle and staying warm with a generator from a generous neighbor. The book then goes into the more technical side of the causes of ice storms and covers a few famous ice storms, including how to try to survive one. There is a glossary, a list of book references, a list of addresses, and a page explaining how to use a Web site that has links to more information about ice storms. These links were chosen by this publisher's editors and are easy to use. This title is part of the "Natural Disasters" series. 2003, Capstone Press,
