  • Description or summary of the book: Wind: you feel it every day, but you never think about its place shaping history. Scientist and bestselling nature writer Bill Streever goes to any extreme to explore wind-the winds that built empires, the storms that wreck them. Narrating from a 50-year-old sailboat, Streever travels from Texas to Guatamala leading readers through the world's first forecasts, Chaos Theory, and a future affected by changing weather. Along the way, he shares stories of wind-riding spiders, wind-sculpted landscapes, wind-generated power, wind-tossed airplanes, storms, early maps, WWII and the Wright Brothers, dunes and the Dust Bowl, shipwrecks, windmills and wars, drawing from history, business, science, and travel. AND SOON I HEARD A ROARING WIND is an effortless personal narrative featuring the keen observations, scientific rigor, and whimsy that readers love.
