Mount St. Helens 35th Anniversary Edition,
The Eruption and Recovery of a Volcano
By Rob Carson
The 35th Anniversary edition of Mount St. Helens: The Eruption and Recovery of a Volcano traces both the catastrophic explosion and the regeneration of this Northwest natural wonder. Beautiful color photography documents the immediate effects of the eruption and the new landscape on display today. The new edition includes a chapter on the 2004 to 2008 eruption which gave scientists a working laboratory to test theories and develop new monitoring tools. This four year-long lava eruption, which took place on the crater floor, provided new discoveries about how volcanoes function.
