Reviewed with Therese De Angelis' Pearl Harbor.
Gr. 6-9. Two new volumes in the American Disasters series highlight very different events in America's history. In Jonestown, De Angelis describes the 1978 mass suicide of the followers of Jim Jones and the ill-fated rescue mission to Guyana. Pearl Harbor recounts the "day that will live in infamy" and its aftermath. The illustrations in both volumes are arresting, the footnoting is meticulous, and there are numerous quotes to keep the history immediate and personal. Each book also includes a time line of similar disasters, a glossary, and a bibliography appropriate for students, increasing the book's value as report material. Few books for the age group deal with the disturbing events at Jonestown, and though much is available on Pearl Harbor, De Angelis' account will work for both younger students and older reluctant readers.
