It's Raining Frogs and Fishes, a lighthearted look at the world's weather, collects oddments and tidbits on climatological matters. Among the book's many high points are Jerry Dennis's natural history of mirages (there are many more than the usual desert variety) and his examination of the age-old question about whether the aurora borealis roars. At other points he looks into ancient Roman beliefs about lightning, the adaptive strategies of the Galapagos penguin, and the origins of dew.About the Author:
Jerry Dennis writes frequently about nature for such publications as Smithsonian and Outdoor Life and pens the "Natural Enquirer" column in Wildlife Conservation magazine. His previous books, It's Raining Frogs and Fishes and A Place on the Water, have received wide acclaim and have been translated into four languages. He lives with his wife and two sons in a century-old farmhouse near the shore of Lake Michigan.
