This is a gripping tale about the disastrous storm that blasted the eastern seaboard in March 1888.  "This work combines splendid storytelling, faultless research, thorough analysis and thoughtful design," said committee chair Susan Faust.  Lending immediacy are eyewitness accounts and evocative visual material.  To underscore historical context, Murphy highlights changes made in weather forecasting and city design after the blizzard.
