AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This novel follows the path of the Cramer family and their fellow members of an Amateur Archaeology Group as they embark on a holiday to Desert Canyon Country, a time in which all will attempt to discover remnants of millennia past, during a Summer Vacation.Many twists and turns both man-made and natural intertwine with a cataclysmic event that encapsulates the group in the centre of a disaster of epic proportions, the result of which finds them and others in a predicament that no one would envy, nor ever imagine.Circumstances see these adventurers presumably vanishing from the face of the Earth. The story follows the life changing dedication of the most unlikely of characters and the underlying love of one person for another as that person strives, and struggles through many and varied interactions and imposing odds, to attempt to overcome the seemingly impossible in order to achieve an outcome that could be an insurmountable challenge to any human¿s devotion to a heartfelt belief and their inability to accept fate, no matter how imposing the odds become.The story incorporates characters who will make you laugh, weep, question, admire and applaud. Central to these are a group of individuals thrown together in an unplanned unimaginable situation. Their sometimes humorous but predominantly chaotic interactions and day to day situations keep the reader guessing from start to finish.It is not a love story, it is an adventure, and yet encompassing the story is one of love and the underlying inference that with dedication and true belief, no challenge is or appears to be insurmountable.This novel has the diversity to be enjoyed by anyone who loves the pleasure and adventure of reading, be they young teens through to the most mature of age.'
