The Book:
Get ready for a new take on New Zealand society, history and geography in one of the first two books in The NZ Series, a snappily designed and fact-packed collection for intermediate and high-school age readers.

Volcanoes and Earthquakes investigates the causes and history of seismic activity in Aotearoa, taking in the Christchurch and Kaikoura earthquakes and recent volcanic activity. The informative, easy-to-understand text is accompanied by numerous explanatory diagrams, historical and modern-day photographs and ‘Fact File’ boxes.

Ours is a physically small country but it packs a powerful amount of geological activity into its landscape, as does the keen design of Volcanoes and Earthquakes.
