      Mount St. Helens is most famous for its catastrophic eruption on which was the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in the history of the United States. Fifty-seven people were killed; homes, 47 bridges, 15 miles (24 km) of railways, and miles ( km) of highway were destroyed. utes of the Mt. St. Helens erup-tion, , acres of forest and recreation land were devastated. In the first growing season after the erup-tion,fireweed and other plants sprouted readily through the tephra (ash, pumice and pul-verized rock) where it was less than 8 inches thick.

    57 People lost their lives in the Mt. St. Helens eruption. Most of these deaths were as a result of asphyxiation or trauma from pyroclastic flows.

      Both illuminating and entertaining, in theory Eruption is a book about the eruption of Mount St. Helens, but like all good non-fiction contains so much more. I didn’t expect to learn about the forestry and the railroad industries or the history of the Forest Service and environmental conservancy in the Pacific Northwest/5(4). The eruption of Mount St. Helens blew down or scorched square miles ( square km) of forest. The failure of the volcano’s summit and resulting landslide and lateral blast produced a complex gradient of disturbance that extended 17 miles (27 km) from the volcano.
