Synopsis by Alice Day
According to the legends of Hawaii, the island was formed by volcanoes, and even in modern times, the eruptions that occur are constantly changing the landscape. Ancient volcanic activity built up the island, and it holds the record for being the highest mountain on earth, rising six miles from the ocean floor. Nature: Hawaii, Island of the Fire Goddess looks at the underwater movement of molten lava, and also offers a seldom-seen glimpse of the world of the high and chilly forests of Hawaii.
