This book takes a thrilling look at an avalanche in Washington State that buried two trains and killed ninety-six people; a landslide in Peru that sent millions of tons of rock and ice cascading at 60 mph down a mountainside, destroying villages in its path; and a mudslide in the Philippines that destroyed a village on the island of Leyte. The combination of a graphic nonfiction format with the high-interest topic of avalanches is perfect for your reluctant readers.
