Volcanologist Haraldur Sigurdsson presents here an all-encompassing treatment of the art, history and science of Snæfellsjökull volcano in western Iceland. This volcano has had influence in literature, that extends far beyond the shores of Iceland, providing the setting for Jules Verne´s Journey to the Center of the Earth. The striking mountain has also been admired by artists like no other in Iceland, and it is the subject of the first Icelandic landscape. The enigmatic Snæfellsnes volcanic zone stretches like an arm to the west from Iceland, with Snæfellsjökull positioned at its end, like a fist into the Atlantic. While the volcano has remained dormant for 1750 years, there is evidence discussed here that it is by no means extinct. The book provides a valuable guide to exploration of this facinating volcano and gives a unique record of its impact on Icelandic culture and history.
