The forest animals are surprised when a volcano suddenly explodes, covering the land in gritty, warm ash and rocks that make it unlivable for many plants and animals. Gopher survives in his underground burrow with food to eat. How does Gopher help bring life back to the mountain? Scientists spent years observing life returning to the mountain following the eruption of Mount St. Helens on May 18, 1980. This fictionalized story is based on their surprising observations of how life returns to an area that has been totally changed or destroyed.

Review:

The gopher's role in providing microhabitats and maintaining soil becomes clear in this personalized story that never misses the science. - NSTA Recommends

Portrayed in skillfully blended narrative and illustration the rumbling of the awakening volcano disturbs the routine of many forest creatures, culminating in the eruption that levels acres of trees and sends the nimble fleeing in an attempt to escape the heat and immense clouds of smothering ash. - Science Books & Films

Children will like this title for the story, and teachers will find the factual aspects valuable to instruction. - Library Media Connection
