Description
Where can you find the worst weather on earth? The surprising answer in Tying Down the Wind is: everywhere. You don't need to climb Mount Everest or voyage to the icy desert of Antarctica to witness both the beauty and the destructiveness of weather. The same forces are at work in your own backyard. Eric Pinder, certified observer at Mount Washington Meteorological Observatory, takes readers on a voyage of discovery through the atmosphere, a swirling ocean of air that surrounds and sustains life. The journey begins in a sunny New England woodlot and ends atop the polar ice of Antarctica--where we learn, remarkably, that the two extremes are not so different after all. Tying Down the Wind invites you to experience the excitement of the world's worst weather in the comfort of your own home.
