From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-- None of us were there when the Galapagos came thrusting upward from the ocean's floor, nor when the Hawaiian Islands burst into air from the Pacific depths, but we do know what they looked like, sounded like, smelled like: like Surtsey, born in fire on a raw November day in 1963, surging above the waves of the cold North Atlantic some 70 odd miles southeast of Reykjavik, Iceland. Here, in a sometimes lyrical text, accompanied by dramatic full-color photographs and apt quotations from Snorri Sturluson's Prose Edda (A.D. 1220-1230), readers are introduced to the brief history of this harsh, bitter land. Along with excited scientists, they enter a living laboratory and watch as life struggles to develop precarious footholds--rather like entering a time machine to Earth's firey beginnings. Well-organized, finely tooled, and beautifully designed--a treat for inquiring minds and eyes. --Patricia Manning, Eastchester Public Library, NY
