  • About the Book
  • More than 200 years of volcano watching in Hawaii is captured in this pictorial history by three contemporary volcano watchers. The illustrated summary of eruptions and earthquakes on the island of Hawaii includes early maps, paintings, drawings, and photographs. The authors describe the conditions under which the early observers worked, the methods available to them, and the insights they gained through observation. The book also traces the development of volcanology in Hawaii and the history of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.
