About this title


In Hawaii, Land of Volcanoes the reader is taken on a great visual adventure. You can follow the life of volcanoes, from their birth deep under the oceanlike the still-submerged Loihito their growth into stone giants like Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, and ultimately through their erosion, decay and return to the world below the sea. Each of these stages presents modern viewers with some of the most dramatic scenery on the planet. Mountains anchored to the seafloor have snowy summits three miles above the surface of the ocean. Coastal cliffs plunge more than a thousand feet from rainforests down to raging surf. Coral-ringed shores create ivory sand beaches.

From the Inside Flap:

Hawaii began in a ferment of fire. It's environment, wildlife and culture are all built on the basis of volcanoes. Whether active, dormant or dead and eroding away, volcanoes give the islands their unique form and support a rich folklore. The text and images of this book take a sweeping view of the world of Hawaii and its volcanoes. They are studied from a geological standpoint, along with the oral traditions of ancient Hawaiians, and the reactions of early Western observers. Current issues are also covered, such as the impact of live volcanoes on a rocky countryside with an expanding population. Dramatic photography captures the fiery hissing and roaring of active vents and flows. These images reveal how a volcano creates new land, and also destroys the patina of life on the surface.
