From the Author
About the Author
R T Douse (aka Richard Douse) lives on a 38 acre piece of heaven that, for the most part, is kept in its natural state for the benefit of local flora and fauna. The property is located between the small communities of Palo Cedro and Oak Run in northern California.
Richard and his wife Tammy live in a modern home on the ridge portion of their property that they designed and built themselves. They have lived off the grid since 1998, relying on photovoltaic panels for their electricity, collecting rainwater off their roof for their in-house use, and growing most of their own vegetables with the help of two solar powered water wells.
Richard was a photographer in the U.S. Navy, later working for General Dynamics/Pomona for many years in Publications Graphics; first as photographer, then as supervisor of the Audio Visual and Color Photography Departments.
Yearning for the country life, Richard and Tammy left security behind them and moved their family to Shasta county. Richard is a writer/poet/photographer and is an active member and supporter of Shasta Land Trust. This is an organization that works with willing ranchers and land owners to preserve and protect open spaces by negotiating conservation easements on their property.

Overpopulation and its frightening scenario for the human race is not a myth, nor science fiction. Douse's, do-good/evil scientist takes us on an exciting ride and leaves us wondering if this is possibly a real solution to mankind's most troubling problem.
The back story is a thrilling tale about the ultimate camping adventure and shows us what true isolation would really be like. Understanding that everyday life is a Challenge and there are no contests resulting in Immunity, every fan of Survivor would find it hard to put this book down.
I enjoy knowing what is going on in a story without knowing what will happen at the end of the story, but I am not as enthusiastic about reading a book when I have no idea what is going on. This book is somewhere in the middle of complete confusion and a thorough understanding of the direction the author is taking.
I of course already knew what the story was about from the synopsis. This helped keep me motivated to continue reading and I am very glad I did. The ending of this story is very thought provoking. How much control does one actually have over their own life? This is a What if story.
