Product Description

Footprints in the Ash: The Explosive Story of Mount St. Helens

In the early morning hours of May 18, 1980, the pristine scenery around Washington’s Mount St. Helens was shattered by a powerful explosion that devastated its north slope. The eruption of a landmark mountain had begun.

In the aftermath, amid the rivers of mud, blankets of ash, and eerie quiet, scientists made a startling discovery: “nature” was bringing life out of death, re-claiming from the destruction a teeming colony of plant and animal life. Most amazing of all, the geological upheavals had re-created the processes of old that had carved out such marvels as the Grand Canyon.

Today, the site stands as a testament to the power of God, who upholds all of creation. In His infinite wisdom, He has shown the modern science of geology that the earth is much, much younger that many suspected.

    Dating – in Geology at least- relies on an often stated presupposition: That whatever happened in the past happened slowly and at a constant rate. Well, things for dating are about to change as geologists take on board “catastrophic” events. One such “catastrophic” event is the Mount St Helens explosion which occurred in the 80’s. Geologists have now been able to carefully document the changes that occurred with the eruption of Mount St Helens. What they found will fundamentally change the way we look at geological dating. In this book on the events following the eruption of Mount St Helens, the authors carefully show how a catastrophic event can cause sedimentation and erosion previously only assumed as possible over very long time periods. This is a must read for those interested in geological dating.

    This book tells of the things happening on the mountain after the dust settled. I am amazed at God’s providence in the aftermath of an apparent disaster. Good and marvelous things do come out of the bad because that is the way HE works. I know that the God of the universe is in complete charge and will make things right. It was HIS plan in the beginning. The author got all the details and the pictures were marvelous as well. I would like to get more books by this person.
