Publisher's Summary

The Mountain of Fire was lying in wait.

It was one the most beautiful mountains in America: Mt. St. Helens in Washington State. But what many didn't know was that this peaceful mountain had an explosive past. For more than a century, it had been quiet. But below ground, pressure had been building, and soon, kaboom! Mt. St. Helens would erupt with terrifying fury.

Eleven-year-old Sally Tanner knew the mountain well, and, like many, she never imagined that this serene wilderness could turn deadly. But on May 10, 1980, Sally finds herself in the middle of the deadliest volcanic eruption in US history. Trapped on the mountain, she must escape clouds of poisonous gas, boiling rivers, and landslides of rock, glacial ice, and white-hot debris.

The newest book in the I Survived series will take listeners into one of the most dramatic events in recent US history, where they will meet one of nature's most devastating forces.

Decent for pre-teens

The stories make long drives much more pleasant. And they are educational. Sometimes they are a little heavy on background and slow in action, but this one has a little more action than most.
