Description

Not only a really great read, but this book will engender an innate respect for the power of moving air and you will never again be apologetic about taking a prudent approach when confronting it.

Scientist and bestselling nature writer Bill Streever goes to extremes to explore wind–the winds that built empires and the storms that wrecked them. Narrating from a fifty-year-old sailboat, Streever leads readers through the world’s first forecasts, Chaos Theory, and a future affected by climate change. Along the way, he shares stories of wind-riding spiders, wind-sculpted landscapes, wind-generated power, wind-tossed airplanes, and the uncomfortable interactions between wind and wars, drawing from natural science, history, business, travel, as well as from his own travels.

AND SOON I HEARD A ROARING WIND is an effortless personal narrative featuring the keen observations, scientific rigor, and whimsy that readers love. You’ll never see a breeze in the same light again. HC, 2016, 308 pages.
