Her investigation into the sinking of the Bounty, which first appeared in Outside, was named one of the best long reads of 2013 by the Daily Beast and a "notable narrative" by Harvard University's Nieman Journalism Foundation. Her most recent book, Quakeland: On the Road to America's Next Devastating Earthquake, is a study of the history, and future potential, of earthquakes in America.
