Summary, etc.:
"Geological change is rarely as dramatic and stunning than it is in the Hawaiian Islands. Beginning millions of years ago, volcanoes burst from the ocean to create the islands. Today, lava flows and landslides continue to reshape the land and sea. Readers will learn about the volcanic hot spot and shifting tectonic plates that created the chain of tropical islands. Vivid images, including photographs of recent eruptions of the Kilauea volcano, will illustrate the changes still taking place."-- Provided by publisher.
