Summary: This account of the greatest lava flow in historical times, which occurred in Iceland only two hundred years ago, is a unique eye-witness record of a dramatic natural catastrophe which threatened the lives of a small nation in the high north.

His original observations and insights make this work at once a scientific classic and a literary gem.
