Summary

Your world is about to change forever. Beneath your feet, a molten hell brews--and its boiling fury can no longer be contained within the Earth's thin crust.

A farmer's field in Mexico is about to become the birthplace of the 2,000-foot high volcano known as Paracutin. Volcanoes brings you the shocking first-person reports of those who have witnessed the violent rage of a volcanic eruption. Why do volcanoes erupt? What strange, changed landscapes do they leave behind? How can scientists predict future volcanic activity? And where were the deadliest eruptions in history? Students will find all the answers in detailed chapters on the science and history of nature's most primordial phenomena. Every young reader will respond to eyewitness accounts of landscapes suddenly alive with sulfuric gases, ashes spread across vast areas, and boiling hot lava consuming everything in its path. Prepare to be awestruck.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: ""This offering from the new Witness to Disaster series introduces readers to these violent eruptions, using eyewitness accounts to explain the history and science involved. They begin with a report of the 1943 birth of a volcano in Paricutín, Mexico, which grew to a height of almost 2,000 feet and completely destroyed a farmer's cornfield and an entire village. Subsequent chapters describe other celebrated volcanoes, explain their causes and types, note the benefits of these eruptions, and clarify how they are currently predicted. New vocabulary is defined within the text and in the appended glossary. Numerous clear, well-chosen photographs and diagrams help to convey the great power of volcanic activity and the consequences to humans. Pull-quote comments from volcanologists, other scientists, and everyday witnesses to these disasters, designed to hook readers' interest, are a distinct plus. Capped with the usual back matter, this will be useful for report writers, and a fascinating pick for browsers."--"Weisman, Kay" Copyright 2007 Booklist"
