View Carol's recent interview with
Nancy N. Baxter from Hawthorne Publishing, Carmel, Indiana.
Her new book Goat Water Is Not What You Think: the Montserrat Island Life of Two Hoosiers and the Volcano That Ended It tells the story of the Elrods’ adventures.
Carol Elrod was a prize-winning reporter and feature writer for The Indianapolis Star for 14 years. In the early 1990s, she and her husband “chucked it all” to spend six months a year on the small Caribbean island of Montserrat. This odyssey lasted four years, until the volcano that had been dormant since 1632 roared to life and destroyed their house.
