Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What triggers a tornado? What can you see in the eye of a hurricane? What's the difference between a thunderbolt and a thunderclap? Popular author and artist Eric Sloane proves why weather is something best understood by seeing it. His illustrated book shows weather "happening." In fact, there's not a sunny page in itand#151;nothing but cyclonic storms, whirlwinds, waterspouts, lightning bolts, and other fascinating, weather-related topics. More than seventy pages of drawings and diagrams make the weather come alive in a book that examines everything from storm mechanisms and cold fronts to the birth of a thunderhead.

A valuable resource for learning more about everyone's favorite topic for conversation and speculation, Eric Sloaneand#151;the "Weather Wizard"and#151;has the countryman's simple and natural comprehension to give substance to his scientific and artistic insights. What especially distinguishes this volume from his other books on the subject is the focus on a detailed treatment of the more spectacular and destructive elements of weather phenomena. His belief is that if this book "gets one to look upward more often, it will have accomplished a purpose."

Synopsis:

With his conversational style and more than 100 original illustrations, the popular author and artist explains "elementary meteorology so clearly that the completely uninformed can gain an immediate understanding." and#8212; San Francisco Chronicle.
