This book reads like an adventure novel. It introduces the main character, Warren Faidley,and explains how he became a storm chaser. Between these introductions, though, the author provides background information on relevant meteorological terms. Portions of the book detail specific experiences Faidley recalls from his early days in photographing lightening and the section on hurricanes is supplemented with Faidley's journal entries from the days before and after Hurricane Andrew. An important feature of the book, in my opinion, is that all of the photographs used were taken by Faidley. The photographs are spectacular and the text is hard-to-resist engaging; this book would be equally excellent for perusing the pictures or getting caught up in the excitement of Faidley's storm catcher stories.

Faidley has done it again, but this time just for kids. Faidley, as a professional storm chaser and photographer, has earned my respect. In his books, the sprit of chasing and storm photography-- not knowing what each day will bring, the dangers and magical moments of storms-- shines through. Vivid description, breath-taking images. This one deserves (what Howie Bluestein might say) 'two convective towers up'!
