Overview

Every day, more than 3,000 young people smoke their first cigarette. Of those young people, 23 will be murdered, 30 will die in traffic-related accidents, and 750 will die from tobacco-related diseases. These are the grim facts that Hirschfelder lays out in this hard-hitting book. Since the original publisher ceased business a year ago, this important anti-tobacco resource has been lost in a cloud of smoke, but Scarecrow Press is pleased to announce that this immensely popular guide is available again, so that every school, every library, every guidance office—anywhere teens will be able to find it—can obtain a copy. Reasonably priced, heavily illustrated, and packed with information, this award-winning guide covers the history of tobacco use in America from the 1870s to the present, so that young people can understand how such a dangerous habit became so popular. The second half of the book focuses on how individuals can remain tobacco-free and how they can join the larger fight against smoking. Important supplemental stories provide accounts of ways young people have made a difference on local and national levels. An intelligent, well-written and high-impact book, recommended for all libraries, schools or agencies serving young people.

Author Biography: Arlene Hirschfelder is the author of award-winning nonfiction books as well as curricula, magazine articles, and bibliographies.

Examines the history and current status of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco and provides an action guide for staying smoke-free.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
The statistics are shocking and yet true. Every day, more than 3,000 young people smoke their first cigarette. Of those young smokers, 750 will die from tobacco-related diseases. Public information is available to all who can read or watch television, and still young people take up the nicotine habit. Part one deals with the history of tobacco use in America. Topics such as tobacco companies, the Surgeon General's warnings, and the movement for smoke-free environments are included in part one. Part two looks at how people are fighting back against tobacco use. Well-known campaigns including public service announcements and court cases are highlighted, as are simple, community-originated ideas such as poster wars, and Teens Against Tobacco. Every library that serves the middle school through high school population should have a copy of his book.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-10-Like its sassy title, this book is lively, interesting, and well written. In the first part, the bulk of the text, Hirschfelder describes the history of tobacco use in the United States from the 1870s to the 1990s. There is detailed information about the big tobacco companies-their growth, persuasive advertising, and influence in congress--as well as the campaigns against them, including the antismoking stances of two surgeon generals, Dr. Luther Terry and Dr. C. Everett Koop. Sidebars provide additional stories such as Honus Wagner's refusal to allow his baseball card to be sold with cigarette packages. The second part tells about various successful programs school children have initiated for smoke-free environments. Numerous black-and-white illustrations, including photographs and advertising posters, add to the book's appealing layout. Appendixes offer basic facts about tobacco (how it's grown, what's in the smoke, health risks, and laws) and an annotated list of resources (videos, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations). The bibliography directs readers to materials and organizations that will help them plan smoke-free activities. Although the book has less information on the addiction and health aspects of smoking than Margaret O. Hyde's Know about Smoking (Walker, 1995) or Judy Monroe's Nicotine (Enslow, 1995), the strong description of the influence of advertising will be good for reports. A useful handbook for young activists.-Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY
