Inspiring stories of courage, resilience and determination in the face of disaster. New Zealanders have endured phenomenal natural and human disasters throughout the ages.

This inspiring book documents some of these key moments in our history and, more importantly, how we responded and grew stronger; what changes/improvements were made as a result. Cyclones, tornadoes, earthquakes, landslides, floods, volcanic eruptions, fires, plane crashes, pandemics and other disasters are just some of the many themes covered in this comprehensive, vibrantly illustrated account. Includes: Outcomes, Safety Tips, and What to Do in an Emergency.

NZ Book Awards wrote "Filled with facts and dramatic descriptions, New Zealand Disasters will fascinate and inform in equal measure. Vivid illustrations bring to life some of the most sombre events in New Zealand’s history. From earthquakes and shipwrecks to plane crashes and pandemics, the focus is not just on the events themselves but also on how New Zealanders have responded to disasters and learned from them, and on resiliency and outcomes."
