Mt St Helena wasn't even a blip of an eruption compared with those of "supervolcanoes" such as Toba (Indonesia), Yellowstone (Wyoming) or Long Valley (California). This book, a bit of a dense read, presents the "Toba Catastrophic Theory" that claims a cataclysmic eruption 75,000 years ago created a mini-ice age that caused a massive die-off of plants, animals and humans that created a "population bottleneck" that resulted in modern humans. An interesting amount of internet research is presented, including diagrams from wikipedia, and a co-author complements the scientific background of the author with the unusual credentials of being a "New Thought Metaphysics, minister and pastoral counselor" and has 15 years as a "trained field investigator for the Mutual UFO Network". Not your usual geology book.
