Erupting volcanoes like Kilauea in Hawaii, and sleeping volcanoes like Mount Rainier in Washington State are the core features of 31 of the National Parks and Monuments in the United States. In addition, ancient fires that once fed a chain of volcanoes along the crest of the Sierra Nevada in California, now completely eroded away, melted the great granite masses that eventually hardened and eroded into the land that is now Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks. This book tells where and how volcanoes are created, and describes the beautiful and awesome examples found in National Parks and Monuments. It also provides travel information on reaching and enjoying these magnificent places, and is beautifully illustrated in Odyssey's distinctive style. This guide provides an original formula for understanding the world beneath our feet. * Non-technical but accurate introduction to how volcanoes work * Description of Parks and Monuments with live and dormant volcanoes, including those in Alaska and Hawaii * Guide to visiting these volcanic Parks and Monuments * Written by a volcanologist and a science writer * Beautifully illustrated with stunning photographs of volcanoes in various moods * 100 color photographs and illustrations, 30 maps and plans
