"Narrator Tom Perkins delivers this laudatory biography of Thomas Jaggar, the Harvard-trained geologist who was the spirit behind the establishment of the Hawaii Volcano Research Station at Mount Kilauea. The audiobook recounts his life--personal and professional--from his first encounter with volcanic violence in the aftermath of the eruption of Mount Pelee in the Caribbean in 1902 to his death in Hawaii in 1953 (with side trips to the Aleutian Islands and Vesuvius). Perkins provides a strong, deep voice, a focused presentation, and clear pronunciation. His pace is slow and consistent, making his narration easy to follow. It was Jaggar's fate to have worked before the understanding of tectonics transformed our view of geology. His lifetime of inquiry illuminates evolving science.
