PIutting Supper to Cook Over a Fumarole The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes By ROBERT F. (GRIGs(; Leader, Katmai-Alaska Expeditions of the National Geographic Society LVING on the very lid of a volcano with these explorers, the reader overcomes conditions hitherto unfaced by modern men. He braves skin removing pumice storms, cooks his baked beans over a volcano, makes his way over a thin crust amid millions of fumaroles, and camps for weeks over a cauldron of boiling mud. FOR here the world is actually in the making. Molten rocks and minerals are being spewed up from the depths to make a new earth crust and Nature is working to bring back grass and flowers to a once fertile area, transformed in a few hours into a desert of burning sand. Y ET, within a few yards of incandescent baby volcanoes are ice caverns where meat may be kept frozen. Not many miles away is some of the Continent's most magnificent scenery-now a Na tional Monument by Presidential proclamation and so the property of every American. 350 pages; 262 engravings and color plates; 7 special maps. $3 postpaid in U.
