The Storm

Or, a Collection of the Most Remarkable Casualties and Disasters Which Happen'd in the Late Dreadful Tempest, Both by Sea and Land

by Daniel Defoe

British author Daniel Defoe is known as one of the early innovators of the book-length novel, especially in his works Moll Flanders and Robinson Crusoe. In The Storm, Defoe creates another literary landmark -- the first modern example of long-form journalism. In the book, Defoe, drawing on firsthand accounts, records the impact and aftermath of The Great Storm of 1703, a series of thunderstorms and floods that barraged southern England.
