Tornados, the twisters that early Americans called Storm Kings, grab our attention for several reasons, not least of which is that they can change our lives in an instant. Most of us have seen videos taken by modern storm chasers, but few of us have even an inkling of the meteorologists, amateur spotters, and even traumatized heartland survivors who set the groundwork for our current understanding of these intense funnel storms. Fusing science with first-person tornado accounts, Lee Sandlin's Storm Kings fully earns its publisher's blurb boast of "Isaac's Storm meets The Age of Wonder."
