How could such a sleepy little mountain change the lives of so many people? But change them it did. This is a story about Iceland and the Westmann Islands in the days when there were no mobile phones, digital cameras, I-pads or computers. Instead of taking photos, children drew pictures. Instead of Xboxes and computer games they had mud pie feasts and played Cowboys and Indians amongst rocks near the sea. Barbies were the newest and most exciting toys around and all the girls wanted to be as curvy and fashionable as the glamorous little dolls. Trolls lived in dark gloomy places, sea monsters lurked in the water, and both had to be avoided at all cost. It is also a story about puffins, Icelandic horses, and a volcano that forced everyone living in a small fishing village to sail to the mainland in the early hours of a bitterly cold winter's night. Seen through the eyes of 12 year old Kría, it is a story of the 1973 eruption of Helgafell and the creation of the new volcanic mountain, Eldfell, but would Kría and her family ever be able to return to the island they love
