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.
