This gripping recreation of a deadly 1856 hurricane also illuminates social history, weather, science, and the growing threat to vulnerable coasts.

Abby (Asbury) Sallenger received his BA in Geology and PhD in Marine Science from the University of Virginia and is the former chief scientist of the U.S. Geological Survey’s Center for Coastal Geology. He presently leads the USGS Storm Impact research group, investigating how the coast changes during extreme storms, such as hurricanes Isabel, Ivan, Katrina, and Ike. As an undergraduate at U.Va., Abby was a student athlete, playing four years of intercollegiate football. He and his wife live in Florida.
