KIRKUS REVIEW

 Faidley is a storm chaser and photographer who has made a career of capturing on film images of tornadoes, lightning storms, and hurricanes. These dramatic full-color pictures, many of which illustrate the book, have brought him awards and acclaim. Kramer describes Faidley's exciting and dangerous life: the special equipment he has designed; his preparation for shoots; the process of locating storms; the ``chase'' that he hopes will result in a photographic record for others to use and enjoy. An excerpt from Faidley's diary limns a particularly frightening day when he and a partner found themselves in the midst of seven tornadoes. The photographs in the book are magnificent in their depiction of nature on the rampage, and in conveying the awesome power of the storms Faidley pursues.
