Best-selling author Eric Jay Dolin looks at “The Five-Hundred-Year History of America's Hurricanes.”
The American Inspiration author series by American Ancestors NEHGS is joined by the State Library of Massachusetts in presenting historian Eric Jay Dolin with his latest work – a magisterial, sprawling account of how hurricanes have shaped American history.

With “A Furious Sky,” Dolin has created a vivid, sprawling account of our encounters with hurricanes, from the nameless storms that threatened Columbus’s New World voyages to the destruction wrought by the Galveston Hurricane of 1900, the Hurricane of 1938, and Carol (1954). Dolin’s riveting tale of history shines a light on American resilience and human ingenuity.

Eric Jay Dolin is the best-selling author of “Leviathan: The History of Whaling in America”; “Brilliant Beacons: A History of the American Lighthouse”; “When America First Met China”; “An Exotic History of Tea, Drugs, and Money in the Age of Sail”; “Fur, Fortune, and Empire”; and, most recently, “Black Flags, Blue Waters,” his acclaimed account of piracy in the Americas.
