Thunder & Lightning (Hardcover) Book

SKU ID #884568
From the National Book Award finalist and visionary writer of Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie, a Tale of Love and Fallout comes a dazzling, beautifully illustrated look at the transformative and alluring power of weather.

Lauren Redniss brings the background into the foreground, illuminating the dynamic and complex nature of the world around us, as well as the intimate and personal relationship we all have to the weather. Weaving personal stories with history, interviews, scientific research, this book explores how deeply our lives are shaped and changed by meteorological phenomena that we often just “put up with.” Each chapter focuses on an event like fog, wind, forest fires, snow, or clouds, and uses Redniss’s idiosyncratic blend of narrative, art, imagery and science to weave a spell-binding story. Sure to be loved by readers of John McPhee and Diane Ackerman, readers of natural history and cosmology, and those who love the graphic form, this is an extraordinary, resonant book.
