DK Eyewitness Books
Volcano and Earthquake: Witness the Power of Our Restless Planet from Violent Eruptions
Discover the power and effects of volcanoes and earthquakes -- from hotspots to tsunamis in this updated edition of a best-selling title in the Eyewitness series.
Highlighting two of nature's most terrifying forces, Eyewitness: Volcano and Earthquake lets young readers witness truly terrifying volcanoes exploding with molten lava and devastating earthquakes that can rip apart and uproot a landscape in an instant. Discover how buildings are earthquake-proofed, find out how animals can detect earthquakes before people, how Pompeii was buried and destroyed by Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, plus learn about the career of a volcanologist, the types of seismic waves and how lava can reach temperatures of up to 2,190 °F.
The introduction of paperback editions, eye-catching jackets, and updated interiors ensure that the Eyewitness series will continue to be relevant in the ever-changing world of education and remain the go-to source for homework help, research projects, reluctant readers, ESL students, and, as always, to satisfy the minds of curious kids.
