Carole G. Vogel

   CAROLE GARBUNY VOGEL is the award-winning author of 26 nonfiction books for children and young adults. Fascinated by the power of nature, she conveys her passion for unusual geological and meteorological events in Shock Waves Through Los Angeles; The Great Midwest Flood; and Nature's Fury: Eyewitness Reports of Natural Disasters, the last of which was chosen the 2001 Boston Authors Club Book of the Year.


According To the review journal Booklist, “Vogel adeptly walks the line between scientific information and the irresistible fascination with disasters...and she puts it all at child level.” The Great Yellowstone Fire, co-authored with Kathryn A. Goldner, was described in Appraisal as a “model of good science writing.” The Boston Parents’ Paper deemed it “one of the 100 best children’s books of the century.”



Ms. Vogel’s publications, Legends of Landforms; Weather Legends; and Breast Cancer: Questions & Answers for Young Women, have all won high praise.
