NO APPARENT DANGER The True Story of Volcanic Disaster at Galeras and Nevado del Ruiz

by | Read by Victoria Bruce

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2001

Packed full of scientific detail and human intrigue, Victoria Bruce's narrative tells the story of two tragic volcanic eruptions in Colombia. While both claimed lives, Bruce focuses on the human error and strong egos that led to the deaths of nine men in the second eruption. Bruce, a trained geologist and former science writer, expertly weaves the story's human and natural elements to depict a careless scientific community driven by arrogance and greed. While Bruce occasionally reads as though lecturing to a class, her steady pace and intricate knowledge of volcanology and the personalities involved in the Colombian disasters mesh for a true story stranger than fiction.
