    Impacts of the eruption

    Echoes of Fury takes the reader into the lives of the victims, survivors, researchers, and dare devils who are all affected by the 1980 eruption. The book starts the morning of the eruption and quickly draws the reader into the devastation and after effects of the cataclysmic event. The author sorts through the misperceptions created by the media and even the government to tell the true stories of the event, rescues, and recovery of both the forest and the people around Mt. St. Helens. Parchman presents the science and politics as well as the personal stories with clarity and compassion. I found the book hard to put down.
