A Furious Sky: The Five-Hundred Year History of America's Hurricanes

From the moment European colonists laid claim to this land, hurricanes have had a profound and visceral impact on American history.  Eric Jay Dolin, local bestselling author and historian, presents the intriguing five-hundred year story of American hurricanes, from the nameless storms that threatened Columbus' New World voyages, to the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. In A Furious Sky, a finalist for the 2020 Kirkus Prize for Nonfiction, Dolin explores the escalation of hurricane season as a result of global warming and uncovers the often surprising ways humans respond to natural crises.

In conversation with Bethany Groff Dorau, historian, author and North Shore Regional Site Administrator for Historic New England.
