A twenty-one mile high plume of smoke struck the vault of heaven as pyroclastic mire flooded Pompeii and Herculaneum below. Where once there was only fire, the travelers see a blessed and beautiful order of things. The distant bells of a thriving baroque city. Plowmen in the fields. Shepherds in the hills. With stirring notes of charred wood and the comforts of balsam, vanilla, and fruit, Pompei 79 finds solace in natural cycles of destruction and creation.
