Showdown at the Mountains that Burn

Chomper had seemingly at last gone the way of his kind, despite his many attempts to fight it off. The matriarch of Ali's herd was dead and the Great Valley was in mourning. The last hope for a herd had been banished for life from the Great Valley for his role in the Sharptooth's escape.

Petrie had long viewed his Uncle Pterano as a second father. However, Pterano had at last told his nephew what he had been keeping from him for nearly 20 cold times. He had been responsible for Papa Flyer's death due to his ego to lead a herd. Petrie, already devastated from Chomper's attack on the Old One, was grief-stricken. Pterano had tried to comfort him, but his nephew, who long held his uncle in such high esteem, had vowed never to talk to him again and vowed that he would always hate him.

Pterano had promised to his brother-in-law to be like a father to Petrie. However, his nephew wanted nothing to do with him anymore. Devastated, Pterano had left the Great Valley. Petrie angrily had said that it was a good riddance.

The Valley of Sharpteeth had been taken over by Red Claw and Chomper and his lover Andromeda forced to flee for their lives. The Valley of Sharpteeth had been stirred up by Red Claw to begin again an attempt to make the Longnecks of the Great Valley pay dearly for taking their homeland over 100 cold times earlier. War seemed on the horizon. And the worst part is that the Leaf Eaters didn't know it was coming.

A cruel and cunning dictator had taken over the Great Valley and nobody was any the wiser there as to what he was or what he had done. The Terror of the Mysterious Beyond, having begun his reign of terror during that fateful day during the Leaf Famine, now had the crown jewel of the dinosaur world, the Great Valley, under his thumb. Now, all he had to do was make sure that they became divided and would fall under his power forever. Then, the world at last would be his and he could have the Bothteeth rule the world!

However, only three stood in his way. Chomper, the Sharptooth, who, he hoped, would succumb to the nature of all Sharpteeth ever before him, and so never be able to help the Leaf Eaters, and his girlfriend Andromeda, whom Chomper had attacked the Old One to save, and, of course, the one the Terror of the Mysterious Beyond wanted gone the most: Littlefoot, the most tolerant Longneck in the world and the greatest threat to his plan to keep the kinds divided. However, if he got the two Valleys completely under his thumb, not even these three could stop him. And, conveniently, for him, the three seemed to be natural enemies and were, in fact, likely to meet up only in mortal combat.

Littlefoot, now worried that he was facing an enemy more dangerous than Sharptooth, except, this time, it was his great friend, headed toward the place he had once called home before coming to the Great Valley. It seemed the only place left to go now and, somehow, he thought that, in all the chaos that now was his life, he might finally get an answer here.

Ruby, meanwhile, has a painful choice before her: to join with the enemy and finally be in charge and feel important like she always wanted or to risk losing it all for those she loves.

Things seemed dark indeed in the Land Before Time, with evil so close to triumph. While evil flourished, good looked the wrong way to find the guilty. However, friendship can be a tool that can break the patterns of everything, even nature itself. For the heart whispers and one might listen closely to learn the truth and spot the wayward friend and spot the real foe. For it takes all sorts to set things right and to defeat evil's might.

This is the final chapter in the story of the Land Before Time. Will Littlefoot's mother's death at last be avenged or will her son fail in his quest to change the world?
