Acerca de


Of all the manifestations of nature, perhaps none is more spectacular than the awesome flashes of lightning which are powerful enough to dig deep holes, split or uproot large trees, and throw heavy objects for hundreds of feet. Every year lightning causes millions of dollars' worth of damage and the loss of hundreds of lives in the United States alone, yet it performs a necessary and fascinating role in maintaining the balance of nature.

This book presents the facts about lightning: why it happens, what it does, and what can be done about it. Many of the chapters include practical advice on protection from lightning—for the home owner, the boat owner, the golfer, the farmer, the swimmer, and many others—advice that can significantly reduce property losses and save lives. Numerous photographs, drawings, and diagrams accompany the text.


"Lucid, entertaining, and useful."

"The first general book on the subject...the handling is clear, definite, and brisk."
