Summary
"As a result of a volcanic eruption in Indonesia in 1815, weather patterns were disrupted worldwide for months, producing excessive rain, frost, and snowfall across much of the northeastern United States, Canada, and Europe in the summer of 1816. ... The Year Without Summer examines not only the climate change engendered by the eruption, but its effects on politics, the economy, the arts, and social structures."--Dust jacket
Summary
The author of Abraham Lincoln and the Road to Emancipation traces a year of dramatic global change in the aftermath of a massive early 19th-century Indonesian volcanic eruption that disrupted weather patterns and triggered food shortages, religious revivals, migrations and a typhus epidemic
