What causes scorching hot lava to spike through Earth's crust and make a volcano blow its top? Do volcanoes exist in space? What do brave volcanologists learn by climbing right into a volcano's mouth? In the wake of the eruptions by Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull, everyone wants to know! Ten spectacular gatefolds, plus incredible photos, graphs, maps, diagrams, and first-person stories, take intrepid young explorers right to the source to find out.
“I’ve written about volcanoes before, but the science is changing so fast that there were lots of new things to learn. I really appreciate all the help scientists gave me in understanding the most up-to-date research. I also enjoyed interviewing a variety of people who had experienced the power of volcanoes up close and personal for the I Was There features in the book. But my favorite part of the project was working with my fabulous editor to create the dynamic horizontal gatefolds that truly take you Inside Volcanoes.”
