New Zealand's only marine volcano has the fascination which all islands seem to have, and since the coming of the Maori to the present day has served as an irresistible magnet to the bold, some of whom have paid with their lives. Fisher men, muttonbird hunters, sulphur miners, scientists and conservationists alike have heeded its call, possibly to be joined in the future by the tourist. In this book we are given a comprehensive picture of:

* the geological formation of the island

* its flora and fauna - both remarkable in their ability to survive in extremely adverse conditions

* the history of the island both as a mining centre for sulphur, and later as a private scenic reserve

* and the expeditions to study gannets, the short tailed bat and muttonbirds.

“Many myths and legends about Whakaari are explained or disposed of, and the book is based upon the most careful and fully documented research.”
