Summary: This informational book is an overview of volcanoes and earthquakes. It discusses what causes them, famous events, how they are studied and how they are portrayed in folklore and legend.

Watch Out For: Some material regarding the disasters can be heavy for younger children. Rescue missions, preparation, etc…
