The inspiration for this adventure story came upon me in the Wilderness of Oregon. For many years I trekked through uncharted regions in search of endangered species such as the Coho Salmon, Chinook Salmon, Bald eagle, Burrowing Owl, Pacific Giant Salamander and Pigmy Rabbit. A healthy ecosystem is dependent upon the biodiversity of the plants growing and thriving outside of the disturbances of civilization. Forests and prairies are ecosystems that perpetuate the biodiversity of life by virtue of the pristine water, fresh air and fertile earth they provide. It is a continuing quest of mine to find wildflowers blooming in their climes and seasons. Balsamroots, Yampah, Shooting stars, Desert Parsley, Lupines, Bearberry, Monkeyflower, Penstemon are just a few mentioned here that are growing in profusion in my story. So you may well wonder as did Phil and Tim after they went back in time via a Solar Tsunami…..is this for Real? Can life be so exciting and bountiful?
