Book Description

Volcanoes of North America capitalises on the vast body of volcano literature now available to present, in a single source, detailed information about volcanoes found in North America. It contains brief accounts, written by leading experts in volcanology, of over 250 volcanoes and volcanic fields formed during the last 5 million years. The volcanoes of the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada are described.

From the Back Cover

The authors of this highly readable, nontechnical, and in-depth exploration of the nature of volcanoes divulge the latest findings in the history of these magnificent forces of nature, plus what a volcano is, and why eruptions occur when and where they do.

By Jerald R Lovell on March 8, 2002
Format: Paperback
This is no book for someone not previously familiar with volcano technology. That much aside, the book is an absolute gem for anyone planning a trip to the Cascade Range, California, or other volcanic area of the continental USA or Canada. A must-have for anyone geeked on volcanoes.
