Volcanoes are the most awe-inspiring, fascinating and potentially devastating geological phenomena on earth. This large-format book brings together a spectacular collection of Bernhard Edmaier's aerial photographs of volcanoes both active and dormant around the world. As well as sensational pyrotechnics, Earth on Fire features beautiful photographs that reveal how volcanic activity shapes the landscape of our planet, and informative, accessible texts explaining the formations and phenomena shown in the photographs.
