From the Back Cover

Fifteen thousand years ago, the New World was wild and unfettered by civilization. Forests reached the skies in unbroken ranks facing the glacier onslaught. Bison thundered on the plains, feeding on lush grasses. Ferocious carnivores rivaled the mighty wolf pack,stalking the herds. Flocks of birds blackened the Sun during their migration to the glacier fed lakes. Salmon choked rivers and streams. Wildflowers covered meadows in bright dazzling colors. Tribes of people hunting Nature's bounty wandered free and exuberant in the glory of Earth and Sky. Back in the 21st century, Tim and Phil journeyed into the wilds of Oregon. Being experienced outdoorsmen, they thought they knew about the nature of hunting and fishing in the fields and streams of America. Until one fateful day their conception of the Wilderness would change forever.

More About the Author

As a naturalist Jack has hiked extensively in the wilderness of Oregon, Washington, Idaho and California. In his quest to experience nature he camped under the stars for many nights in the High Desert of the Great Basin, walked under waterfalls of the Columbia Gorge, viewed the panorama of the Dry Falls, bicycled up steep inclines of the Sierra Nevada peaks, enjoyed the wonders of Yosemite, Zion, the Sierra Madres of New Mexico, the Grand Canyon, Snake River Valley and Hells Canyon. One summer in the not too distant past, he took a bicycle tour from San Diego along Highway 101 to Carmel then east to Yosemite and back. During his stay in San Diego, he surfed the waves of Pacific Beach to Baja California. Many a weekend he camped in the Cuyumaca mountains, hiked through the Anza Borrega desert and sailed the waters of Mission Bay. For many years he lived in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey , growing perennials, planting trees, raising children, landscaping, tracking deer, canoeing the rivers and catching nice big catfish. He now lives in the Highlands of New Jersey and goes fly fishing most every day. Often he frequents the rivers of the Catskills and tributaries of Lakes Erie and Ontario.

Travel back in time to the pristine forests of the Northwest. Experience the natural beauty of Oregon, the simplicity of tribal life in a bountiful land, and the dramatic challenges of indigenous peoples as they struggle through inter-tribal conflict as well as predatory threats, and life changing geologic events as the end of the ice age gives birth to the Missoula floods. Re-live their experience through this well written story of two unwilling time travelers who were assimilated into tribal life, participated in tribal ceremonies, made seasonal migrations, and shared the struggles of the indigenous people as they confronted life threatening changes. When I reached the end I wanted more, more, more ....

Format: Paperback
This book really kept me reading from cover to cover, as I followed two modern american outdoorsmen in their quest for survival in a harsh yet fulfilling wilderness, where they did not find savagery and mayhem, but spiritual illumination and their own connection to Mother Nature. Cynics and begrudgers will sing a new tune when they are teleported to a forgotten age where only simplicity and the unadulterated beauty of Nature is vital, and the indigenous peoples of North America show two lost Americans the truth path towards the light !
