Fierce Beauty: Storms of the Great Plains

By Eric Meola

Fierce Beauty: Storms of the Great Plains chronicles Eric Meola’s initiation into storm chasing during a trip to Nevada with Bruce Springsteen in the late 1970s to make photographs that eventually would be used on Springsteen’s album The Promise, and which he documented in the song ‘The Promised Land’.

It features more than 100 atmospheric photographs of tornadoes, lightning, dust storms, and storm phenomena taken during four decades of personal trips to the Great Plains and during seven seasons of chasing storms, from 1977 to 2019

The book includes several extracts of storm-chasing experiences by renowned storm chasers and meteorologists, such as Charles Chuck Doswell III, Chris Gullikson, and William T. Reid
