Storm Kings

This is the story of our nation’s earliest tornado chasers – from the day Benjamin Franklin whacked his riding crop at a whirlwind he chased into a Maryland woodland to the storm watchers of WW II, meet up with early proto-scientists and awe-struck adrenalin junkies who back in the day didn’t have motor cars to drive nor much scientific knowledge to explain the violent weather they chased.  But  they were as awed by the power of rampaging nature as those who travel with storms today.  This is quite a story!

Nick Schenkel is the director of the West Lafayette Public Library, and reviews books from all walks of literature.
