This is an important bit of American history that appeal to (most likely) people interested in history, the advancement in meteorological study & reporting it. And/or those over 60 who may have heard parents, grandparents tell of this truly great hurricane that seemed to come out of nowhere to kill 700 people. It was a trip down history lane as to the mind of America in 1938. A time when it's only 9 years out of the greatest depression a very few Americans are coming out of poverty, the rumors of another war with Germany and the mind-bending horror of Hitler begins to surface. I was especially impressed in the telling of the long forgotten value of economy, the lack of flaunting status. Yes, I recommend this read.
