Isaac’s Storm: A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History

content.chilifresh-1Isaac’s Storm: A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History by Erik Larson

Isaac Cline was the meteorologist for newly formed U.S. Weather Bureau in Galveston, Texas when the deadly hurricane of 1900 hit and nearly 12,000 people lost their lives. The loss of life was more than the Johnstown Flood and the San Francisco earthquake combined. Larson’s book tells the story of the events leading up to the disaster, the hurricane itself, and the unbelievable aftermath. The book is a compelling read by the author of The Devil in the White City and Thunderstruck.
