Editorial Reviews

From the little baking soda and vinegar experiments in your basement to the lore of Pompeii, volcanoes have captured our excitement and filled us with fear for thousands of years. Through famous case studies, Dr. Rosaly Lopes lets listeners in on a more intimate look at one of the most mystifying natural phenomena. Performed with the gentle tenor of veteran narrator James Adam, this audiobook is a great introduction into the world of volcanoes and their importance and effect on the world around us.

Publisher's Summary

As one of the most fascinating and volatile forces on Earth, volcanoes have long been the subject of worship, fear, and study. With the aid of famous case histories, Lopes provides a unique background to volcanoes, what they are, why they form, and how they erupt. From the Sunset Crater in Arizona and Krakatau in Indonesia to the exotic volcanoes of the outer solar system, this guide illustrates the dangers of volcanoes and their importance in shaping the world around us. This impact is underscored by the crippling aftermath of the Icelandic eruption that brought UK and European air traffic to a complete standstill.
