really liked it
bookshelves: keepers, indonesia, non-fiction, science, 19th-century

A very well written, smart book on the famous eruption of 1883 that is hauntingly similar in devastation to the more recent tsunami in Indonesia. Recommended for anyone who wants their science to be understandable by the non-academic.
