And Steve Olson collects them in his new book Eruption, which puts the science and history of the mountain in the context of personal reports from people who were nearby when it blew in May 1980. On Monday, March 7, Steve will talk about his book with Steve Scher at Town Hall in Seattle. Tickets here. photo: USGS
