Biografia breu
Martin Sandler has received two Pulitzer Prize nominations, a Boston Horn
Book Award for The Story of American Photography: An Illustrated History for young People, and seven emmy awards. He is the author of more than eighty books, including Sterling's Resolute: The Epic Search for the Northwest Passage and John Franklin, and the Discovery of the Queen's Ghost Ship. His best selling Library of Congress American History series have sold more than 500,000 copies.

Mr. Sandler has produced and written numerous series for television; he was the creator and co-writer for the acclaimed "This was America" series, hosted by William Shatner. He has taught American history and American studies at the University of Massachusetts and Smith College. Martin Sandler is a passionate tennis player and a life long follower of the Boston Red Sox. He loves to uncover important but neglected stories in the human experience, particularly if they involve unimaginable heroism and surprising results. He lives with his wife in Cotuit, Mass.

His latest book is entitled Lost to Time: Unforgettable Stories that History Forgot published by Sterling in 2010. His next book, Kennedy Through the Lens (for young adults) will be released on January 4, 2011. Mr. Sandler is currently at work on three other books, The Kennedy Letters based on over 2 million pieces of correspondence from the Kennedy Library Archives in Boston. Bloomsbury, will publish The Kennedy Letters in three countries simultaneously: America, England, and Germany, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy's death. Also in the works currently are two other books -- one on the Japanese-American Internment, and a young adult book on one of the most amazing sea adventures in history.



I finally had to stop reading this book. The author, who teaches American history uses topics in this book to provide his own soapbox. How does one go from a chapter about the strikes in 1919 to the hazards of global warming? And this is what our children are being taught? This is abysmal. No wonder children are challenged to understand history, let alone appreciate it.

I am waiting to check out a finished copy from my local library as the review version had no "full-color" images to review.

Though this book is intended for children, it should appeal to adults as well. The book covers some of the most well known disasters with specific happenings, such as the San Fransisco earthquake, the Dust Bowl, and the Mount St Helen’s volcanic eruption. But it also tells of the Influenza Epidemic, the Galveston Hurricane, and the Pestigo Fire, as well as others. It even mentioned some little known disasters such as the molasses flood in Boston, tsunamis, and steamboat sinkings. Rich with photographs, newspaper clipping, and engravings, this book is a fascinating look at some of America’s disasters. Good for older kids, adults certainly will appreciate its succinct style.… (més)
