What's Whim of the Wild about?

History is full of stories of influential leaders, brave soldiers, and society changing movements. These moments are crucially important to the modern state of civilization, but none of them matter to the Earth and the natural forces of the universe. Normal processes of the planet and her systems go on as though nothing is different, and we dub these events "catastrophes" when people happen to be in the way.

In Whim of the Wild, we take a deep dive into the worst cases of nature's indifference that humanity has ever been caught in the middle of. Learn about the history of the region, the people who live there, the science of the event, and the impact that lasts for generations.
