Volcanoes in America's National Parks

Volcanoes are the architects behind some of the most magnificent and dynamic landscapes of America's national parks. Hawaii's Kilauea has erupted red hot lava for many continuous years. Washington's Mount St. Helen's destroyed 230 square miles of forest in its devastating 1980 explosion. The cataclysmic eruption of Katmai in Alaska was the largest in the world during the 20th century. Majestic Mount Rainier and Old Faithful geyser are among the star attractions of other national parks where the volcanoes are not sleeping. Even the granite of Yosemite is a heritage of long-dead fires. This book describes more than 30 volcanoes in America's national parks, and provides an introduction to the science of volcanoes - where they occur and how they work. Lavish color photos, maps and travel information let you choose which of these wondrous and beautiful parks to visit next - an excellent example of Odyssey's distinctive style.
