Issues of global warming continue to be relevant, and every day brings front-page stories about the weather, generating new research, raising even more questions and possible solutions. Storm Chaser is a mesmerizing look at some of the catastrophic consequences of our planet's increasing temperature, captured by an expert in the field. Through breathtaking photos, quotes, letters, and journal entries from climatologists, researchers, political leaders, spiritual advisors, and storm survivors. Storm Chaser chronicles photographer Jim Reed's most thrilling, beautiful, memorable, and dramatic adventures to date.
From extraordinary tornadoes to historic hurricanes, remarkable floods, geomagnetic storms, and magnificent lightning, Reed captures not only the mercilessness of America's sometimes deadly weather, but also the magnificence and meaning behind the tempests.
The hardcover edition of Storm Chaser received critical acclaim and wide media attention. The New York Times wrote "These are the images that demonstrate the heart of weather's primal draw, and that hold the power to make weather fanatics out of even those of us whose first instinct is to run." Repackaged as a paperback with 16 pages of new material, this revised edition of Storm Chaser provides even more incredible images and the astonishing stories behind them.
A collection of full-color photographs of severe storms and the devastation they leave in their wake is accompanied by the photographer's tales of riding out such seasonal weather as tornadoes, hurricanes, and blizzards.
