    Kansas: In the Heart of Tornado Alley Comment

    1. Being a native Kansan I grew up learning all about tornados This book is a fascinating historical account of tornados in pictures From the very first tornado ever captured on film to recent ones and photographs of the destruction they can bring makes this book a must have for any Kansan or tornado lover.


    2. Since I moved to Kansas we have hunkered down twice in a tornado warning I was scared out of my mind one tornado hovered right on top of us and we had to go to the church basement Every Monday the tornado siren deafens me.
