Synopsis With hot coursing lava and rolling clouds of ash, a volcanic eruption is one of nature's most exciting and deadly shows. There are approximately 1500 active volcanoes around the world, and their unpredictability and intensity are matched only by their visually stunning bursts of activity. In this spectacular oversized volume, award-winning photographer Philippe Bourseiller documents the awesome power and devastating aftermath of volcanoes. More than 170 full-color double-page spreads, including satellite photos, depict the dramatic outbursts of active volcanoes in images of red-hot oceans and rivers of fire, massive craters and islands formed from molten rock, and silt-coated towns filled with inhabitants struggling to cope with chaos. From the ancient ruins of Pompeii, wrecked by the wrath of Vesuvius, to the recently awakened Guagua Pichincha near the equator, Bourseiller's photographs trace the history and terrible beauty of volcanoes while the text provides the most up-to-date methods for predicting and adapting to the eruptions of these awe-inspiring giants.
