Sweeping across the Pacific, a devastating storm wreaks havoc on San Francisco and the California coast and then moves relentlessly toward the Sierra Nevada, burying mountain passes and railroad tracks under tons of snow. First published in 1941, Storm presaged trends in literature and ecology that would appear decades later; an engrossing novel constructed by a master storyteller, it delineates an intricate web of humanity, wildlife, and landscape, all interacting in a drama that includes the weather itself in its cast of characters.
