Portland author Kevin Scott will publish The Voice of this Stone: Learning from Volcanic Disasters Around the World on June 1st. Come hear him present on this fascinating topic! More than ever, volcanologists and emergency responders around the world have greater insight about how to prevent certain death for those who live near volcanoes, active or “sleeping.” History has shown that when Mother Earth shrugs, people often die. Among that concerned volcano, experts is local author Kevin Scott, who is equipped with fifty years of global, boots-on-the-ground experiences and extensive publishing history. In this collection of volcanic disaster case histories, Scott shares the wisdom gained by scientific inquiry and observation of his own — and that of his renowned colleagues — that he hopes will save lives. The Voice of this Stone compels readers to listen and heed these hard-learned lessons. Curiosity and adrenaline seem to have fueled Scott's lengthy career, surviving a helicopter crash in Alaska, escaping from a near-kidnapping in South America, and emerging from a close call with a flowing lahar in the Philippines.
