The Volcano Disaster is Peg Kehret's time-traveling adventure that started as a simple class assignment.
Warren Spaulding and Betsy Tyler are supposed to be working on a class project about Mount St. Helens. Instead Warren is busy testing his grandfather's latest invention -- the Instant Commuter. Suddenly, he is teleported back to the morning of the eruption and he has no way of getting back home!
