Windswept – The Story of Wind and Weather

Marq de Villiers

I found this to be an excellent book!  It seemed to be more about the wind than weather, but as we know, wind and weather are inseparable.   The wind is often a major component that can be discussed in its own right.  This book covers not only the factors of global winds, but also the history of how we understood them in ancient times and the reason for those thoughts.  It also takes the reader through a step-by-step understanding of the wind from a modern global understanding to a local one.  No ecosystem on earth could be fully understood without a good understanding of the wind.
