The drama, beauty, terror and aftermath of Tornado Alley… One man’s journey into and through one of the most horrific and awe-inspiring storm season on record. Join Canada’s Tornado Hunter, Greg Johnson, on this deeply personal journey and you too will be Blown Away.
In his own words and stunning colour photographs, Johnson crosses the 49th Parallel to bring a fresh and intimate perspective to the life of the storm chaser on both sides of the US-Canadian border.
The reader travels with Johnson through 12 American states and two Canadian provinces (Saskatchewan and Manitoba) in his quest to not only intercept, but document some of the season’s most powerful storms, like the EF5 tornado that devastated Joplin, Missouri on May 22, 2011.
Blown Away is also a look inside the world of severe weather photography, and Johnson provides tantalizing detail of his equipment and shot strategies that will satisfy the amateur and professional photographer alike.
Blown Away is 168 pages, with more than 200 color photos, and includes a Foreword by international television star George Kourounis (host of The Angry Planet), an introduction and an index.
