Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"A meticulously researched and compelling book that far exceeds the scope of the weather-disaster genre."

Hugh Willoughby, Wall Street Journal, 09/03/1999

Review:

"In ISAAC'S STORM, Erik Larson provides more than the biography of a weather event by assembling a complex fable from the horrific details such a storm leaves in its aftermath....Larson moves us through all of this, plus the history of hurricanes, the invention of weather science and a touch of chaos theory, with the dispatch of an adrenalized Charles Dickens."

William L. Fox, San Francisco Chronicle, 10/03/1999

Book Description: Random House Audio Assets, United States, 2006. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. abridged edition. 158 x 141 mm. Brand New. National Bestseller September 8, 1900, began innocently in the seaside town of Galveston, Texas. Even Isaac Cline, resident meteorologist for the U.S. Weather Bureau failed to grasp the true meaning of the strange deep-sea swells and peculiar winds that greeted the city that morning. Mere hours later, Galveston found itself submerged in a monster hurricane that completely destroyed the town and killed over six thousand people in what remains the greatest natural disaster in American history--and Isaac Cline found himself the victim of a devestating personal tragedy. Using Cline s own telegrams, letters, and reports, the testimony of scores of survivors, and our latest understanding of the science of hurricanes, Erik Larson builds a chronicle of one man s heroic struggle and fatal miscalculation in the face of a storm of unimaginable magnitude. Riveting, powerful, and unbearably suspenseful, Isaac s Storm is the story of what can happen when human arrogance meets the great uncontrollable force of nature. From the Trade Paperback edition.
