All the ITPOD!

When Mount St. Helens erupted cataclysmically on May 18th, 1980, a lot of people were caught in the blast zone. Some witnessed the eruption from within the devastated area. Some were in the air, some on other Cascades peaks. Some didn’t survive, but left photos and notes behind. Everyone had a unique story to tell. USGS geologist Richard Waitt collects their stories in a volume that will chill, thrill, and keep you up at night. Anyone who’s at all interested in volcanic eruptions needs this book. My liveblogging of the reading experience can be found right here.
