Floods, fires, cyclones, earthquakes, volcanoes, plague, disease, drought and famine, storms. You name it, Mother Nature tests us from time to time, and more often than not, having been through a disaster changes you, or the course of your life.

Mother Nature is not new. She’s been very active over the centuries, and you can bet that your ancestors lives would have been affected by her one way or another.

By earthquake if they lost their house, by drought and famine, where there was no work and no food which meant emigration was a good option, by plague with losing a family member or two, and so on. I’m sure there are a number of disasters that you remember hearing about on the news, or you may have even lived through one yourself. As for the earlier generations, without today’s modern technological advancements life was harder, and no doubt Mother Nature surprised them more.

Written by Wayne Shepheard, and published by Unlock the Past, this new book on climate change and other natural phenomena is a very unique way to look at the lives of your ancestors and what they went though.
