What an unexpected amazing read this book was. I purchased this book in 2012 at one of the Mt St Helen's Observatories and it has sat on my shelf for 3+ years. It was only when I ran out of library books that I picked this up to read.

I bought this book when we went to Mount St Helens. I really enjoyed it! The part about the trial was a little slow and took me a few nights to get through, but the rest of the book was very enjoyable. It's very hard to imagine what these people went through on the day that Mount St Helens erupted with such fury.

This was a phenomenal book! If you love earth science and want to understand the 1980 eruption and volcano eruptions in general, this is your book. I highly recommend it! I had no idea the extent of the 1980 eruption until I read through this book.
