Experience the exhilaration and terror of the Mt. St. Helens eruption through this amazing eyewitness account. Renowned volcanologist Dr. Catherine Hickson vividly portrays one of the most spectacular geological events of the 20th century. As a young geology student at the time of the eruption on May 18, 1980, she watched from only 9 miles away as the dramatic explosion created a "stone wind" of molten rock and ash. Traveling at more than 300 miles an hour, in 3 short minutes it redefined the lives of many people and flattened 230 square miles of forest in Washington State. The devastation stopped 2 miles short of the author's location and claimed 57 lives. Some of the victims were found as far as 13 miles from the crater. Based on a letter written to a close friend immediately after the eruption, the author's personal narrative also chronicles the volcano's formation, destruction, and rebirth, and is augmented by many diagrams and photographs that have never before been published.

This comprehensive book traces the warning, planning, and response to the eruption of Mount St. Helens in May 1980, as seen through the eyes of key actors in the emergency. Based on first-hand accounts by 130 officials of government, private industry, and volunteer organizations--individuals who played prominent roles in preparing for and dealing with the eruption--it represents a unique overview of the problems and procedures involved in learning about, planning for, and dealing with a major disaster. Ironically, the first official warning had come as early as two years previously. More warnings came several months before the explosion. Yet many persons involved either ignored them or remained unaware that they could be affected. The book shows how this happened, suggesting steps that can be taken to insure future preparedness for large-scale emergencies.

"How life bounces back from epic destruction On May 18, 1980, people all over the world watched with awe and horror as Mount St. Helens erupted in southwestern Washington. Fifty-seven people were killed, and hundreds of square miles of what had been lush forests and wild rivers were to all appearances destroyed. While most people thought of the eruption as a catastrophe, a small, ragtag team of ecologists did not. For them, the eruption of Mount St. Helens was the opportunity of a lifetime. Here was an unprecedented chance to test some of ecology's oldest and most august theories about how plants and animals recover from a massive disturbance. Ecologists thought they would have to wait years, or even decades, for life to return to the mountain. But when a forest scientist named Jerry Franklin helicoptered into the blast area a couple of weeks after the eruption, he found small plants bursting through the ash and animals skittering over the ground. Stunned, he realized he and his colleagues had been thinking of the volcano in completely the wrong way. Rather than being a dead zone, the mountain was very much alive. Mount St. Helens has been surprising ecologists ever since, and in After the Blast, Eric Wagner takes readers on a fascinating journey through the blast area and beyond. From fireweed to elk, the plants and animals Franklin saw would not just change how ecologists approached the eruption and its landscape, but also prompt them to think in new ways about how life responds in the face of seeming total devastation"--

A riveting history of the Mount St. Helens eruption that will "long stand as a classic of descriptive narrative" (Simon Winchester). For months in early 1980, scientists, journalists, and nearby residents listened anxiously to rumblings from Mount St. Helens in southwestern Washington State. Still, no one was prepared when a cataclysmic eruption blew the top off of the mountain, laying waste to hundreds of square miles of land and killing fifty-seven people. Steve Olson interweaves vivid personal stories with the history, science, and economic forces that influenced the fates and futures of those around the volcano. Eruption delivers a spellbinding narrative of an event that changed the course of volcanic science, and an epic tale of our fraught relationship with the natural world.
