Marq de Villiers, Carried Away by the Wind
The wind has held the full interest of writer Marq de Villiers since a boyhood in gusty South Africa.
Now he has written a chronicle of his favorite force of nature -- its origins, its mythology and its temperamental side, too.
Windswept: The Story of Wind and Weather is a personal exploration of the phenomenon as well as a scientific handbook.
De Villiers and Debbie Elliott shoot the breeze about the book and the weather.
