Old Fashioned Science Fiction
A thousand specially selected people leave a troubled Earth for a new start on a virgin world many years away. Their starship is state-of-the-art and entirely automatic; its passengers safely sleeping through the long journey. All possible scenarios have been taken into account except one. There is no way to predict sabotage.
Al Clark wakes to begin a new life, alone on a crippled starship with no memory of what transpired to place him there.
It is the beginning of a quest that will take him places he could not have imagined, manage feats he would not have thought possible, and teach him the true meaning of friendship.

They left a planet ravaged by climate change, war, and corruption...
to establish a new community on a virgin world of wonder, with a pristine mountain valley perfectly suited to fulfill their needs. Their technology will allow them to live comfortable pioneer lives in a mild climate among breathtaking landscapes and clean, fresh air.
In the beginning, they believed Avalon to be paradise; a primitive paradise, maybe - but paradise nonetheless. The refugees from Earth are about to be reminded they are no longer at home, for this beautifully deceptive planet harbors a few distinct differences.
On Avalon, there was no ice age, and dinosaurs never became extinct.
Al Clark is Going Home.
His wife of thirty-two years has passed away, and the kids have moved on. There is no longer a reason to stay in the village they founded. After an absence of seventy-four years, he returns to an Earth he does not recognize in search of his past. Amnesia has robbed him of the first forty-two years of his life, and he hopes to recover them. It was supposed to be an easy trip, where he would sleep through the long journey and be awakened upon arrival.
That is not the way it works out.
Al Clark is on a mission.
His people have suffered enough, and he is determined to find a solution. Somewhere, there is a place his colonists can live in peace and without fear. He wants them to accomplish more than just survive. It is a task he is determined to complete - or die in the attempt.
Five years after settling Avalon, the settlers from Earth are still struggling to live on a planet populated by dinosaurs. The deceivingly beautiful world has taught them that paradise comes with a price.
The welfare of each and every person under his care depends on his finding a better, more forgiving world.
They left Earth long ago, hoping to find paradise. Now, all they want is - a place to call home.
