The Chilean mining disaster was an event that bound the world together. More than a billion viwers, including many children, following the saga on their TV and computer screens. The story of the 33 miners is a truly amazing, high-drama one, and it's made kid-friendly here by veteran nonfiction writer Elaine Scott. It's a story about heroes, community, and family as well as technology and problem-solving. There is even a spectacularly happy ending. The book will offer lessons learned that will inspire young readers for years to come, long after the media attention has died away.
