Hmm, not to argue (well, okay, I am arguing), but IMDB doesn't list a book source, and even Leonard Maltin, who usually does mention any book source when he's discussing the plot of a movie, doesn't refer to one, so I think you might be recalling a book made from
the movie, not vice versa. Anyway, the movie was later retitled 'Volcano' just because of the geo-gaff-ic title (whether original to the movie or not).
