Cradle of the Storms


Category: History: U.S.: Alaska


Bernard R. Hubbard, S.J.


Copyright/published Year: 1935 by Dodd, Mead


Binding: hardcover


Neither is Alaska only interesting from the commercial point of view, as its many volcanoes, including Aniakchak, the world's largest active volcano, make it a happy hunting ground for the geologist. It was among these volcanoes that Father Hubbard carried out his research work as head of the Geology Department of the University of Santa Clara. He has contributed much to the scientific study of volcanoes, and has to his credit an ingenious and plausible theory as to the volcanic origin of the storms which sweep across America. In the course of his work Father Hubbard has necessarily encountered many adventures, and these are graphically described in the book. Among other exciting experiences, Father Hubbard has had the thrill of being a passenger in the first aeroplane to make a successful landing in the crater of an active volcano. The volcano was Aniakchak, whose crater has a circumference of twenty-one miles and contains a lake, on which it is possible for a seaplane to land. Illustrated with photographs by the author.
