Lee Sandlin presents a riveting tale of tornadoes and the pioneering, weather-obsessed scientists whose discoveries created the science of modern meteorology. Along the way, Sandlin details the fascinating history of the National Weather Service, paints a vivid picture of the early Midwest, and shows how successive generations came to understand, and finally coexist with, the spiraling menace that could erase lives and whole towns in an instant. Sandlin will also discuss The Distancers, a family memoir about his ancestors from Edwardsville, IL.
