Book Summary :

The earth we live on feels so firm under our feet. And yet its surface is made up of slowly moving plates and inside is a core of liquid rock and metal. Sometimes the plates move a little too quickly. They bump into each other or one slides under the other. At such times the earth shakes and rocks everything that is standing on it. Cracks appear and through it spews red-hot lava. As the ground shifts under the ocean large volumes of water are displaced and moved from one place to another. This is the inside story of our planet. What happens when the earth moves? Earthquakes! Volcanoes! Tsunamis!

Book Summary :

Each year, at least 1,200 tornadoes batter the United States. While most occur in Tornado Alley--a vast, weather-beaten swath of middle America-in truth, tornadoes can occur almost anywhere. And where there are tornadoes, there are storm chasers. They come in all shapes and sizes, from hobbyists to researchers to professional chasers. There is one, however, who stands well above the rest: Roger Hill. Hunting Nature's Fury tells the story of Roger Hill and his love affair with storm chasing, taking you on a suspenseful and dramatic ride across the Great Plains, into the Deep South, even into the eyes of such recent hurricanes as Katrina. You'll accompany Hill as he braves close calls, makes history, and gains insight into the science of severe weather. This is a story of a storm chaser obsessed with the storms that almost killed him; of resiliency in the face of disaster; and of humility in the presence of the awesome power of nature. Includes eight color pages of jaw-dropping photos taken by Hill showing many of the storms chronicled in the book.

Wind is one of the strongest forces of nature. Its energy can be harnessed and used in many ways. But uncontrolled wind can create havoc. The faster it moves, the stronger it gets; blowing away everything in its path — trees, houses, buildings and people. As it moves around the earth it shows its destructive nature through storms, cyclones and tornadoes. How does wind turn itself into a whirling pillar filled with thunderstorms? What can we do to protect ourselves from this disaster? Read this book to find out.

Book Summary :

“Not since Sebastian Junger in The Perfect Storm has a writer captured so well the fury of the seas as Curt Brown.” —The Maritime Executive Through masterful research and elegant prose, Curt Brown traces the devastating intersection of nature’s fury and corporate greed. It was Thanksgiving week 1905, and the industry bosses wanted one last run before the shipping season ended; the bottom line depended on it. The tragedy that followed led to the building of Split Rock Lighthouse—and went down in history as one of the nation’s worst shipping disasters. The explosive squall caught nearly 30 vessels on Lake Superior. In the wake of the storm, weather forecasting and shipbuilding were forever changed. Drawn from the accounts of witnesses and survivors, So Terrible a Storm is a must-read.
