And despite their reputation for destruction, volcanoes produce new mountains, new islands, and new soil. Visit some of the world's most remarkable volcanoes along with one of the most outstanding science writers in children's books. It's an extraordinary--and unforgettable--trip.

Do you think of volcanoes as simply big mountains with lava streaming over their tops? Not all of them are like that. Some are covered in ice, and some look like nothing more than deep blue lakes. Some have not erupted in living memory and still may awaken someday to send red-hot rocks and ash flying through the air for hundreds of miles around.
