Los animales del bosque están sorprendidos cuando la montaña explota repentinamente, cubriendo la tierra en cenizas rocosas, calientes y en piedras que hacen imposible la supervivencia para muchas plantas y animales. La tuza sobrevive en su madriguera subterranean con comida para alimentarse. ¿Cómo ayuda la tuza a que la montaña se recupere? Los científicos pasan años observando el regreso de la vida a la montaña siguiendo la erupción volcánica de Mount St. Helens el 18 de mayo de 1980.
