Review:

Storm Chaser is a marvelous book about the awesome beauty of atmospheric violence, the people who seek it, and the stunning photographs captured of our turbulent atmosphere at its most dramatic.

From Booklist:

Converting his obsession into a profession, Faidley makes his living by photographing twisters in Tornado Alley. He makes no pretense to literary musing or meteorologic exactitude: Faidley's manner toward t-cells is strictly veni, vidi, and video if possible. Most chases fail to sight a tornado, the futility of which Faidley's logs compensate for in their description of what--including potentially lethal danger--the entire endeavor entails. This activity is enjoying voguish popularity, either by participation or watching the movie Twister. Some libraries can meet the immediate interest (boosted by advertising on The Weather Channel) by displaying Faidley's collection of 100 dramatic images; those tending to longer-term collection development can fall back on Laskin's more comprehensive Braving the Elements Gilbert Taylor
