AUTHOR

DeBlieu, Jan

SUMMARY

In Wind, Jan DeBlieu brings a poet's voice and a scientist's eye to this remarkable natural force, showing how the bumping of a few molecules can lead to the creation of religions, the discovery of continents, the destruction of empires. DeBlieu visits the weather observatory at the summit of Mount Washington, where some of the highest wind speeds in the world have been recorded. She talks to survivors of a deadly tornado in Iowa, tries hang gliding over North Carolina's Outer Banks, climbs sand dunes in Oregon and slickrock formations in Utah - everywhere exploring the effects, subtle and brutal, comforting and terrifying, of the wind.DeBlieu, Jan is the author of 'Wind How the Flow of Air Has Shaped Life, Myth, And the Land' with ISBN 9781593760946 and ISBN 1593760949.
