Finally comes the first complete account of the cataclysmic eruption of Mount St. Helens and its dramatic after-effects on the mountain and life around it for a quarter-century.

Frank Parchman tells an epic story of eight people whose lives careen into dramatic new directions and who ultimately become bonded to one another and to the mountain in the aftermath of the volcanic fury in the southwest Washington state.

Echoes of Fury is about nature's awesome dispay of raw-throated power; the heartbreak and anger of survivors whose lost loved ones were largely unaware of the danger, the thrill of scientific discovery, and ultimately the renewal of both nature and the human spirit.

This was a phenomenal book! If you love earth science and want to understand the 1980 eruption and volcano eruptions in general, this is your book. I highly recommend it! I had no idea the extent of the 1980 eruption until I read through this book. Read full review
