On April 20, 2010, workers were drilling for oil on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico when a fire caused a huge explosion. Eleven workers tragically lost their lives. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the only disaster. The explosion caused a huge oil leak in the Gulf that took months to stop. The consequences of the leak continue to affect the area to this day. Oil Spill: Deepwater Horizon traces the tragic story of the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, the resulting oil leak, and the effects of the poisonous oil on ocean animals and coastal communities. Fascinating photos of the actual events, maps, and fact boxes enrich the compelling text. The personal and heart-breaking story will grip and inspire young readers.
