Yahoo News National Correspondent and Oklahoma native, Holly Bailey joins us today to discuss and promote her new book The Mercy of the Sky. When Moore was hit by a tornado in 2013, Bailey went back to her home state as both a journalist and former resident. In The Mercy of the Sky Bailey does for the Oklahoma flatlands what Sebastian Junger did for Gloucester, Massachusetts, in The Perfect Storm - telling a dramatic, page-turning story about a town that must survive the element or die.
