Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Volcanologist or not, this will make you fall in love with volcanoes Phenomenal aerial photographs of volcanoes from North America to Australia are published in this book. There are also many pictures of mud pots and geysers from around the world. If you are genuinely captivated by the different creases and colours that shape our planet, this book is for you. I bought it from my local Chapters store for $20 (on a promotion sale) so if you can find it at a similar price, I definitely recommend buying this! It will make a great addition to your coffee table.
