Discover the amazing forces that shape the earth!

Where do "killer clouds" come from? What causes the birth of an island? How tall is the tallest mountain . . . and how come you can't see it? Can cockroaches really predict an earthquake?

Join popular ABC-TV weather forecaster Spencer Christian as he unearths the mysteries of volcanoes, tornadoes, and other natural events so powerful they've changed not only the face of the planet but the very course of history! Find out what makes the earth quake. Create your own shock wave. Discover what volcano covered an entire city with over four feet of ash, and how the lost continent of Atlantis disappeared. Plus, you'll learn the answer to that age-old question, will Old Faithful always erupt on time?

It's an action-packed tour that will have you shaking, rattling, and rolling as you explore the forces that shape our world. Intriguing, easy-to-do activities let you experience amazing natural phenomena up close--and dozens of fascinating sidebars, fun facts, and illustrations bring the world's wonders to vivid life. The natural world has never been this awesome!
