And Soon I Heard A Roaring Wind

And Soon I Heard A Roaring Wind

Wind: you feel it every day, but you never think about its place shaping history. Scientist and bestselling nature writer Bill Streever goes to any extreme to explore wind–the winds that built empires, the storms that wreck them. Narrating from a 50-year-old sailboat, Streever travels from Texas to Guatamala leading readers through the world’s first forecasts, Chaos Theory, and a future affected by changing weather. Along the way, he shares stories of wind-riding spiders, wind-sculpted landscapes, wind-generated power, wind-tossed airplanes, storms, early maps, WWII and the Wright Brothers, dunes and the Dust Bowl, shipwrecks, windmills and wars, drawing from history, business, science, and travel.
AND SOON I HEARD A ROARING WIND is an effortless personal narrative featuring the keen observations, scientific rigor, and whimsy that readers love.
