Detailed Product Description
 New York, 1982, 1st edition. 189 pp, b/w photos, bibliography. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition.

Vesuvius has erupted scores of times in the last two millennia. Its most recent eruption came only a generation ago, in 1944, during World War II. Volcano takes the reader through the dramatic life of the most renowned volcano in history and its legacy of destruction. Hoffer visits the village of San Sebastiano, destroyed four times by Vesuvius in the last 150 years and rebuilt each time. Hoffer also reconstructs the fascinating history of Vesuvius, providing the most detailed account there is of the fall of Pompeii and the volcano's subsequent ravaging of the Italian countryside over centuries.
