Pg. 99: Liz Skilton's "Tempest: Hurricane Naming and American Culture"

Featured at the Page 99 Test: Tempest: Hurricane Naming and American Culture by Liz Skilton.

About the book, from the publisher:
In Tempest, Liz Skilton considers the history of hurricane naming, why we name storms, and what effect these names have on society. The study chronologically traces the development of the naming system from its pre-WWII origins, as connected with other naming and identification systems of the natural world, through the present. Taking a Gulf South perspective, the study focuses on key storms that have shaped not only naming history but also understanding of hurricanes in American culture.
