This enthralling book describes fifteen of the most remarkable volcanic eruptions in history and, using rare firsthand accounts, analyses their impact on the humans in their paths. Alwyn Scarth surveys volcanic disasters from the violent eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. to the eruption of Montagne Pelee that killed 28,000 people in three minutes, to the forest-razing eruption of Mt. Saint Helens in 1980.
