Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of insightful investigations like Lewis Thomas’ Late Night Thoughts on Listening to Mahler’s Ninth Symphony, and Sue Hubbell’s A Country Year, widely respected nature writer Jan DeBlieu offers a compelling look at a natural force that touches our lives every day. With a scientist’s eye for detail and a poet’s ear for language, DeBlieu examines one of nature’s most elemental forces. From a light breeze cooling a hot brow to a gale that blows apart buildings, no other natural phenomenon affects people as directly as wind. DeBlieu explores how wind has aided the rise and fall of empires, the discovery of continents, and the establishment of religions. Wind provides surprising, delightful insights into a force that constantly reshapes who we are and how we live. Suzanne Toren’s narration lends a voice of quiet, thoughtful authority to a subject you’ll never view the same again.
