Every year over 50 volcanoes erupt on the earth. Some have been active for years, and others have not stirred for centuries. Throughout history mankind has been both fascinated and terrified by volcanic activity. Vesuvius, Krakatoa, and Mount St. Helens are indelibly etched into our consciousness with the immense destructive power they wrought, and the human life they have ended; yet many of us still make our homes on the fertile slopes of these majestic mountains.This book showcases the greatest eruptions in history along with the newest volcanic islands that erupt each year from the seabed; it also examines the properties of lava along with its lasting effects on the landscape. From evidence of volcanic activity on the moon to craters under the sea, this book encompasses it all, making it the ultimate testament to volcanoes.
