Volcanoes don't always look like mountains; they aren't always full of fire. Some are holes in the ground; some form under the sea. And despite their reputation for destruction, volcanoes produce new moutains, new islands, and new soil. Visit some of the world's most remarkable volcanoes along with one of the most outstanding science writers in children's books. It's an extraordinary, and unforgettable, trip. In a clear, concise text with over twenty-five stunning full-color photographs, the noted science writer Seymour Simon explains how the four major types of volcanoes are formed, why they emerge only in certain places, and what to look for in the two kinds of lava. He also reveals astonishing facts about volcanoes.
