Steve Olson’s book is a fascinating and refreshing look into the eruption of Mount St. Helens. A little bit of science, a little bit of history, and a heavy dose of human interest kept the book fresh, engaging, and personal. This book is for fans of Daniel Brown’s The Boys In the Boat or David B. Williams’ Too High & Too Steep.

Does this book sound familiar? Maybe it’s because you read about it on this blog back in October, when Shawn from Powell’s in Portland first discovered it and told his bookseller friends and colleagues about it. The official publication date is March 7, but you may already find it on the shelves at Ravenna Third Place and other enthusiastic indies.
