Brantley Hargrove's new book out this year is The Man who Caught The Storm, The Life of Legendary Tornado Chaser Tim Samara. He has written for many publications including Wired, Popular Mechanics and Texas Monthly.
In the early 2000s, Brantley Hargrove described himself as rudderless University of North Texas undergrad not knowing what he was going to do with a bachelor’s degree in journalism.He had been on the staff of the campus newspaper. And- He had some good clips.
Eventually Hargrove landed writing stints at newspapers in Wyoming, South Florida, and Tennessee. Then Hargrove made his way back to Texas in 2013 where he reported for the Dallas Observer.
While reporting for the Dallas Observer, Hargrove came face to face with THE story of his young career… A story about Tornados and the people who spent their lives trying to be where no one else wanted to be…. right smack in the middle of the most ferocious, deadly storms on the face of the earth. The Man Who Caught The Storm puts you there too.
