'Beautiful ... bursting with poetry, with storytelling' WERNER HERZOG

We are made of the same stuff as the breath and cinders of volcanoes.

No matter where we live on the planet, these fiery mountains have long shaped the path of humanity. World-famous volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer has worked at the crater's edge in the wildest places on Earth, close enough to feel the heat of the lava. In Mountains of Fire we join him on hair-singeing adventures from Antarctica to Italy, to learn how deeply our stories are intertwined with volcanoes.
