From the moment European colonists laid violent claim to this land, hurricanes have had a profound and visceral impact on American history. Dolin presents the story of American hurricanes, from the nameless storms that threatened Columbus’ New World voyages, to the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, and the escalation of hurricane season as a result of global warming. A work of environmental and cultural history, A Furious Sky changes the way we understand the storms on the horizon of America’s future.
