Historical Thriller Delves Into Men In Storms And The Storms In Men
A lighthouse keeper is chained to his rock. Bound to it by duty. Lighting the light might seem a simple, small thing. But to those at sea, it means everything. ~~ Todd Gipstein
In 1938 a simple gust of air changed the world. It began in at the Bilma Oasis in the Sahara Desert and was first noted by Phillipe LeTendre from the French weather service. The gust of wind was duly noted as a shift from east to west and created a small vortex in its wake. The small vortex grew and gained power until it crashed on the shores of Long Island and New England on September 21, 1938. To date, it is still the strongest, costliest and deadliest hurricane in New England’s history.
