SASKATOON AND REGINA, March 23, 2012 /CNW/ - Tornadoes have already made the news with the recent devastation in the American Southeast. Just in time for the 2012 season, a new book by Canada's "Tornado Hunter" Greg Johnson touches down on April 2.
Blown Away: A year through the lens of The Tornado Hunter ($34.95, Indie Ink Publishing) brings a fresh and intimate perspective to the life of the storm chaser through his own words and stunning color photographs.
"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 Tornado Alley's most powerful storms, like the F5 tornado that devastated Joplin last May," says Indie's Suzanne Paschall. "This beautiful, compelling and educational book will appeal to readers who are fascinated not only by tornadoes, but to photographers, teachers and those in the weather, aviation and emergency measures industries."
