Who knew that a scientist could writing an interesting, readable, and at time scary story of 3 of the ways that the very earth that we live on can kill you? If you love watching shows that show destruction and death that Mother Nature seems to enjoy doing more lately, this book is for you. The author tells about how he actually experience some of these and lived to tell about it. He even broke the law to get the last interview of one of the most famous victims of Mt. St. Helens explosion that proved that yes, even in the United States there are volcanoes. Lots of great pictures and resources to find more death and destruction. Who knew science could be this fun? Just right up Evil Mutant Librarian's alley.
