Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0988792605, Paperback)

SYNOPSIS: Time travel is big business in the 25th century. Artifacts from the past are salvaged and people are extracted. Interestingly, the entrepreneurial development of the recovery process leads to a massive archaeological expansion on a scale that dwarfs The Smithsonian and provides for colonial expansion across the galaxy. Australia is the new Ellis Island.

MORE: Written in the first person, this is a PG-rated adventure story extolling the basic virtues, like accountability, honor, integrity, and fidelity. What this work lacks in titillation it makes up for in historical color like Connie Willis, entrepreneurial development like Nathan Lowell, and futuristic wonderment like Edgar Rice Burroughs. Most readers will find this book acceptable for ages from teen to centurion and all should be delighted to learn that the Dawes polyverse is not apocalyptic. In fact Earth is reborn: millions of bison once again roam the prairie and old-growth forests blanket the east coast. The future is Utopian.

NOTE to Librarians: LCN 2013902944.

NOTE to Parents: Although this story was written for adults, kids as young as 11 have given it a thumb's up. All characters are adult. Some secondhand action, good vs. evil scenario, suitable for YA: no sex, no F-word, no smoking, no drugs, mild violence, PG-14 for adult language. Strong emphasis on accountability, responsibility, honor, trust, integrity, fidelity, loyalty, valor, etc. Hard and speculative science, real history with famous real historical figures in a dramatized far future adventurous plot. Think, John Carter of Mars.
