About this book

The magnificent storms of the infamous Tornado Alley in the central USA have been extensively studied and revered both by professional meteorologists and enthusiasts who chase the storms in the quest for the ultimate extreme weather adrenaline rush. "Adventures in Tornado Alley" takes the reader out on the road with Mike Hollingshead and Eric Nguyen, two young chasers whose knack for being in the right place at the right time and thereby capturing the grandeur of these spectacular scenes has won them worldwide attention.

The book charts the dramatic development of seventeen chases - illustrated journals that take you to the heart of the unfolding events through sequential photography and a running commentary by the chasers themselves. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the natural world, photography and science.
