Working at a summer clinic in Yellowstone National Park, she hopes to expand her medical skills and finds herself working above the increasingly restless Yellowstone supervolcano.

While an overworked Abby makes new friends, tension builds as the volcano seems to be moving closer to a major eruption and the bison killings increase. Abby finds herself in mortal danger as the story races to a thrilling and unexpected conclusion.
