In the Americas With David Yetman

Under The Shadow Of The Volcanoes

Season 8, Episode 8 of 10

Guatemala has more active volcanoes than any other country in North America. This portion of the famed "Rim of Fire" has left an indelible imprint on the landscape and on the cultures of the nation. With volcanoes come earthquakes and no city illustrates a greater heritage of both than Antigua. And no volcano has left a finer landscape than Lake Atitlan. Volcanoes destroy, however, and we visit a town recently overwhelmed by a nearby volcano.
