School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7‘Dramatic full-color photos of lightning, tornadoes, and hurricanes are a vivid testimony to the dedicated efforts of Warren Faidley, storm chaser and photographer. Kramer's readable, exciting text allows readers to ride with Faidley in his specially equipped vehicle, Shadow Chaser, as he races to intercept likely tornado or lightning producers and to join him in the chaotic maelstrom of Hurricane Andrew. Interspersed with Faidley's adventures is a concrete body of information on lightning, storm development, tornado behavior, and the art of photographing fleeting phenomena. There is no index, but the organization of the material and a clear table of contents make specific information readily available. This eye-catching book will undoubtedly be utilized by nonfiction lovers hungry for a good read.‘Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
