The story "Pulse of the Land" is set near the Mayon Volcano
in the Philippines. Take a photo tour of the area at this
site. Then go to Climbing Mayon Volcano to read about
the legend of the Mayon Volcano and the dangers of the climb.
Imagine scaling the volcano. Write a letter to a friend describing
your emotions and details of your surroundings as you hike
toward the summit.
