In the 25th century, deep under the Earth’s shattered surface, the dying remnants of humankind live in a dwindling Colony devoid of Nature and only one can travel to the past to save humanity from its dark fate.
Available in Paperback, eBook and Audiobook formats.
In 1969, Washington State geology student René Thompson pursues an independent study program that will set him on a path to climbing the world’s highest peaks. But, as he joins an expedition to summit Mount McKinley in Alaska, what he discovers on the mountain is beyond anything he imagined.
