The year is 2055, and a man named Eckles is interested in time traveling. He goes to the time traveling safari center, and reads that there is no guarantee to come back alive. He is nervous from this, and is teased by the man behind the desk for it. He and others finally leave, along with Travis, the safari-leader, all the way back to the time of the dinosaurs. This story develops the idea of a domino effect, because if anyone even stepped on live grass, the whole future could change after that. The safari sees a huge Tyrannosaurus Rex and shoots it. On the way back, Eckles accidentally veers off the path and steps on a butterfly. He is ordered by an irate Travis to go retrieve the bullets from the dinosaur, and bring them back, because they cannot be stuck in the past either. They get back to regular time, and notice several changes as a result of the dead butterfly. There is a feeling of chemicals in the air, words are spelled differently, and there is a different president. Sobbing on the ground, Eckles is shot by Travis, which is known as “the sound of thunder”, in the title.
