Lee Sandlin talks about his book, Storm Kings, in which he recalls the beginnings of modern meteorology and the study of tornadoes throughout the American Midwest. The funnel clouds, given the moniker, “Storm King” by the region’s early settlers, attracted scientists that included the United States' first meteorologist, James Epsy. The author reported on several of the nation’s most destructive tornadoes and the scientific gains made to inform the population of potentially dangerous storms. Lee Sandlin speaks at Prairie Lights Bookstore in Iowa City, Iowa. close
