Week 3 of Nonfiction November is hosted by Katie at Doing Dewey, and this week's theme is Be the Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert. In the past, I've mostly asked for recommendations during this week of #NonficNov - this year, I'm going to try being the expert!
If you peruse my blog a little, you can see that I love the outdoors, so that's where I'm going to take inspiration from. Nature can be a wonderful, beautiful thing - but it can also be terrifying and dangerous. This collection of books touches on the dual nature of... well, nature!

Dead Mountain: The author tries to piece together what happened to a group of hikers who mysteriously died in the Ural Mountains.
The Perfect Storm: A nor'easter tears through the Atlantic, leaving death and destruction in its wake.
