School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-A collection of court documents, speeches, letters, and eyewitness accounts. The first three chapters include essays from survivors, rescuers, and on-the-scene reporters. Papers written by and about Timothy McVeigh give a general idea as to who he was and what he believed. Information about coconspirator Terry Nichols and Michael Fortier, a friend who was aware of the plot, is included, as are trial transcripts and speeches given by Presidents Clinton and Bush. The book covers the tragedy from the planning stage to implementation and aftermath, trial and execution to the memorial. Because of its broad and comprehensive coverage, students will find the book useful.-Sharon Morrison, Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Durant, OK (c) Copyright 2010.
