- 320 pages
In his first book, Hurricane of Independence: The Untold Story of the Deadly Storm at the Deciding Moment of the American Revolution, author Tony Williams recalls one of the worst storms to ever hit the Atlantic coast.
The two hurricanes (arguably one storm) in 1775 battered the American East Coast all the way up to Newfoundland, pummeling multiple colonial capitals. Williams discusses how the weather affected politics during a time when natural disasters were considered signs of God's will, quoting letters, diaries, and other historical documents.
