*&nbsp"High-stakes science, portrayed in one of the scarier entries in this bar-setting series."- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

In 1985 at 11:35 p.m., Colombia's Nevedo del Ruiz, a towering volcano, erupted, sending a wave of mud and rocks bulldozing through the village below. Twenty-three thousand people died. Today, more than one billion people worldwide live in volcanic danger zones. In this riveting nonfiction book-filled with spectacular photographs and sidebars-Rusch reveals the perilous, adrenaline-filled, life-saving work of an international volcano crisis team (VDAP) and the sleeping giants they study.
Elizabeth Rusch has been obsessed with volcanoes since she watched the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens on television. She lives in Portland, Oregon. www.elizabethrusch.com Tom Uhlman has been a freelance photographer for twenty-five years. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio. www.tomuphoto.com

Editorial Reviews

High-stakes science, portrayed in one of the scarier entries in this bar-setting series." - Kirkus, starred review "This book gives tragic and terrifying volcanoes a sense of story that other books lack by talking about real-life crises and how individuals came together to keep millions of people safe. . . . A great addition for all collections." - School Library Journal, starred review "Images of the destruction may initially draw the casual browser, but far more impressive is the balance of vivid photographs that bring the international scientists into the limelight." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "[A] terrific addition to the Scientists in the Field series . . . The portrayal of scientific investigation is exceptional." - The Horn Book Magazine, starred review "
