“Lyrical prose and luminous paintings lead readers on a tour of the Yellowstone supervolcano, from the wolves, elk, bears, and mountain goats that roam its surface to the fiery depths of its magma chamber. Volcano Dreams knits together the vibrancy of the Yellowstone ecosystem with its explosive history, placing the everyday lives of its creatures within the context of geological time. Janet Fox’s poetic text takes us to the root of it all – the ‘sleeping giant’ of magma responsible for the Yellowstone landscape – and Marlo Garnsworthy’s evocative paintings capture the awe of natural forces at work in our nation’s oldest national park.”

“Janet Fox warmly harnesses the rhythms and sensations of wakefulness and sleep in this insightful exploration of the geological past and (hopefully quite distant) future of an American treasure.” – Chris Barton, author of the 2018 Orbis Pictus Honor Book Dazzle Ships
