I picked this up at the botanical gardens near Hilo because I wanted to learn more about volcanoes and about the formation of the Hawaiian islands.

It was good and informative and jibed with what we had learned in Volcanoes National Park and from our guide on a waterfall hike, Eric.

This was a nice primer but I need to find something more substantial that delves into it a little deeper. It's a fascinating subject for me and I want to learn more!

I purchased this book on a trip to the Big Island based on flipping through and seeing some of the great photos. I didn't expect such great information. The author takes you through the history of volcanoes and people involved, etc. It was really interesting and I found it hard to put down. I learned a few things too and that surprised me because I had been at the Island and been learning a lot and thought I had heard it all. The photos are all amazing.
