Fiction. A violent storm, affectionately known as Maria, sweeps through California. Making her way from the Pacific coast, she gains momentum as she approaches the Sierra and transforms into a blizzard of great strength, covering the range with twenty feet of snow. STORM, originally published in 1941, combines fiction with the sciences of geography and meteorology, drawing on a deep awareness of human nature and human vulnerability in the natural world.
