From the moment European colonists laid violent claim to this land, hurricanes have had a profound impact on American history. Join bestselling historian and local author Eric Jay Dolin as he presents the five-hundred-year story of American hurricanes, from nameless storms that threatened Columbus’ New World voyages, to the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, and the escalation of hurricane season as a result of global warming. Dolin introduces a rich cast of characters, including Benjamin Franklin, Ernest Hemingway, Katherine Hepburn, and Steven Spielberg, and puts us in the middle of the most devastating storms of the past. A work of environmental and cultural history, A Furious Sky will change the way we understand the storms on the horizon of America’s future.
