Hot melted rock from the middle of our planet forces its way up through cracks in the Earth's crusts, exploding violently and sometimes unexpectedly in volcanic fury that can terrorize populations for months, even years.
Anne Schreiber's narrative gives readers a little science, a little history, and a lot of action of volcanoes. National Geographic photography fires the imagination on dramatic spreads alive with vivid images of lava, ash, molten rock, weird rocks, and steaming seawater.
