Nathaniel Rich

The first ecological novel: The life story of Maria, a Pacific storm that besieges the American West, told from the storm’s perspective. Formally deranged, stylistically radical, Storm fuses the spirit of a 1930s social drama with the sensibility of an Aldo Leopold. Published in 1941, it sold more than a million copies.
