Summary
"In 1985, the town of Armero, in Colombia was wiped out by rivers of mud mixed with ash and lava from the eruption of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano. Based on the experiences of many volcano eruption victims, this fictional story follows Luis and his family who flee their home just in time, are rescued by helicopter and later helped by the government to build a new home in a new village. Interspersed with facts and case studies about what causes volcanic eruptions, this narrative tells a story common to many people who have had to flee and rebuild their lives after losing their homes, possessions, and sometimes, loved ones"--
