From the Inside Flap:

Full-color photos. "Some of nature's most spectacular phenomena get the 'Eyewitness' treatment, with the gorgeous graphics and outstanding design that characterize this series. The account starts with an overall perspective showing how volcanoes and earthquakes occur. Effects on humans and attempts to measure and predict these events are treated. This book will attract readers to an already popular topic, and will provide one of the most effective introductions available."--School Library Journal.  

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-- Some of nature's most spectacular phenomena get the ``Eyewitness'' treatment, with the gorgeous graphics and outstanding design that characterize this series. As usual, coverage is primarily visual, with brief introductory text and informative captions. The account starts with an overall perspective showing how volcanoes and earthquakes occur, with related events like steam vents and boiling mud. Effects on humans and attempts to measure and predict these events are treated. Even volcanism on other planets (mostly their moons) is shown. The striking photographs include a shot of a Philippine town dusted by Mount Pinatubo; the people's colorful clothes clash with the ashy whitness covering all the houses and the ash-darkened sky. In another spread the ash cloud from Mount St. Helens can be seen rushing down the mountainside in three successive photos. This book will attract readers to an already popular topic, and will provide one of the most effective introductions available. Mary Elting's Volcanoes and Earthquakes (S. & S., 1990) offersmuch of the same information in more text-oriented form, with less attractive visuals. --Jonathan Betz-Zall, Sno-Isle Regional Lib .
