Isaac’s Storm brings back the story of the forgotten storm that ravaged Galveston, Texas in September of 1900. It follows the storm from where it begins through the aftermath. It also looks at the events on land leading up to the storm. Isaac Cline and his brother both worked to observe the weather patterns. No one, however, heeded the warning signs and devastation ensued. This book gives us hindsight into a lesson needing to be learned at our key moment in history with all the natural disasters that are cropping up around the world.

That being said, the book itself was laden with some unessecary detail and lets its focus get distracted from the major theme of the book. Overall, it reads like a documentary. Some may enjoy it, but I had a hard time getting through it.
