U.S. Atlas of Nuclear Fallout 1951-1962 Abridged
General Reader Edition
The U.S. Atlas of Nuclear Fallout 1951-1962 Volume
1 was dense with information, but we wanted to know what the average
reader thought about it. So we sent it to librarians around the country,
among them, Wendy Bossie (Caribou ME), Symma Zerkow (Houston, TX), Patty
Gross (Council Valley, ID), , Kathleen Adam (Shenandehowa, NY), Bev Russel
(Scottsbluff, NE) and Arlene Ott (Cody, WY.) All read the book and responded
with thoughtful reviews. All said the book was thorough, but probably too
technical for the average reader. Thus began the General Reader Edition Project
in which Volume 1 of the Fallout Atlas would be turned into a book understandable
by the average reader.
The task turned out to be more difficult
than expected---and took much longer to complete. But by early
2002, the manuscript was ready to send out to the librarians.
They all pronounced the new version much easier to understand.
The U.S. Atlas of Nuclear Fallout 1951-1962--General
Reader Edition was officially published in May, 2002.
Atlas of Nuclear Fallout 1951-1962 Volume I Abridged General
Reader Edition is
currently available at Amazon.com., however this edition does
not include information from the Hardtack II series or shot
Baneberry (Dec 18, 1970.) For that information, you should
consider the 2006 edition.
