Video tours volcanoes

Everything you ever wanted to know about the Big Island's volcanoes, Volcano House, and the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park surrounding environment is probably found in the new video, "VolcanoScapes V."

Fifth in a series, the video highlights 200 years of the park's major eruptions from 1790 through the on-going Puu Oo now in its 13th year.

The tape also discusses the geology, ecology, culture and history of America's 12th national park. Park rangers guide viewers on hikes through untouched lava tubes, petroglyphs, and lava flows into the sea.

"VolcanoScapes" - $29.95 plus $4 postage and handling - was filmed and written by Mick Kalber; narration by Dunbar Wakayama.

"VolcanoScapes" is available at Hilo Hattie, Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, Longs, Book Gallery, Basically Books, Volcano House, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Visitor Center, and Jaggar Museum.
