Isaac's Storm: A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History

Erik Larson

2000 • Vintage Books USA

ISBN: 0375708278

★★★★★

Larson tells the incredible story of hubris, disaster, and loss behind the fall of Galveston as America's premier Gulf Coast city from the perspective of several residents, most notably Issac Cline who oversaw the nascent Weather Bureau office there. Well-paced and immersive, it's an entertaining read.
