About this book

Underlying the elegance of the Cascade Mountains in Oregon is the disquieting fact that the range's major peaks are potentially hazardous volcanoes. On average, two eruptions occur per century. This book provides residents and visitors with an understanding of each peak's distinctive nature and how the volcanoes are linked by their geologic underpinnings.
