Stories from a Heated Earth: Our Geothermal Heritage

Edited by Raffaele Cataldi, Susan F. Hodgson and John W. Lund

This beautifully crafted book offers a fascinating journey through time - focused on the earliest influences of geothermal phenomena upon the peoples of the world. Covering about 40 countries with authors from around the world, the unique collection presents accounts - both true and imaginary - of our geothermal heritage from the dawn of man to the Industrial Revolution. The book includes geothermal tales and practices found in ancient manuscripts, myths, and oral accounts - some never before recorded. The stories are written in an easy, nontechnical style. Over 200 photos illustrate ancient geothermal artwork: pottery, drawings, maps, and statues. The unique, attractive book - a mixture of geothermal archaeology, history, and anthropology - is 580 pages long and a "must have" for earth historians and historical libraries alike.
