Volcano: Iceland's Inferno and Earth's Most Active Volcanoes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This dazzlingly illustrated volcano guide documents the 20 hottest volcanoes of the 1,900 that pockmark Earth's surface, including recent eruptions that seared landscapes and lives. It is a relevant reference for the 500+ million people who live in active volcano zones and others who are intrigued by our planet's primal pageantry.

Book News Annotation:

Marcia McNutt, director of the U.S. Geological Survey, introduces this collection of stunning photographic essays drawn from National Geographic publications on one of nature's most spectacular and increasingly-researched phenomena. Following general background information on volcanoes, Prager (a marine scientist in Key Largo, Florida) presents profiles of 20 major active volcanos by continent, from Iceland's recently erupting Eyjafjallajokull to Mt. St. Helen's. The sources are listed. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
