This paper briefly looks at how residents of the area have coped with having a partially active-volcano in their geographic domain. The paper addresses lifestyle issues, agricultural and ecological issues as well as a short history of the volcano's activity.

From the Paper:

"While modern men created the hydrogen bomb, they have it in their power to decide when and where it can explode. But no one man, no corps of scientists or engineers, no politicians, no army of environmentalists, no governments can control the actions of aroused volcanoes. In one destructive flash they can wreak more pollution and devastation than anything man designs. Obviously we must learn to cope with these handsome deadly creations of nature if present and future generations are to live safely and happily alongside the volcanoes in the western United States. Hopefully, Mount St. Helens will teach us how to accomplish this. 8"
