Editorial Reviews

After 123 years at rest...A cubic mile of earth, incomprehensive it its magnitude, shot into the sky with the explosive power of six atomic bombs. It is 8:30 a.m. May 18, 1980 and the long slumbering Mt> St. Helens has once again erupted back to life. The violence of the cataclysm and the resulting devastation staggers the imagination. Here, in text and spectacular pictures ,is a chronicle of that once-in-a-lifetime event...the majestic, frightening beauty and the brutal reality of nature at its most destructive. The New Staff of KOIN-TV, Portland, Oregon, and the noted geologist, Dr. Leonard Palmer, have collaborated to bring the reader an authoritative on-the-spot account of the eruption. They make you a witness to this awesome event as old as the Earth itself.
