Horace Bascom was born a hundred years too late. He simply did not fit in the modern world. A recluse, a billionaire, highly educated as a physician and a physicist, he accomplished the greatest scientific achievement of the 21st century—crossing the rift of time into an earlier century. Travelling to Ft. Worth, Texas, circa 1878, he meets a young woman suffering from advanced tuberculosis. This chance meeting changes his life. He races across the rift to bring her life-saving antibiotics and assist in her recovery. However, complications now exist in the modern time-line as leaked financials of H.B.’s vast wealth reach media outlets throughout Texas and his 100-acre ranch becomes a focal point for reporters hawking for a story.

 Sinister eyes read of H.B.’s vast wealth and isolation and send forces to kidnap him. However, he has a problem. He must protect the secret time machine from the outside world and yet help the critically ill young woman of another century. He must find someone to help him. Someone he can trust. Someone who can fight to save his ranch and protect the secret locked within his garage. He must leave, take his chances, and again go “across the rift” to fulfill his destiny and save a life.

This story is inspired by true events…

Carl was an inexperienced pilot and the assignment he was given was beyond his abilities. He was to fly two young teenagers through Merrill Pass in the middle of a spine of tall mountains known as the majestic Alaska Range. Mistakes were made, fatal mistakes, and the unforgiving nature of the mountain pass took a terrible toll on Carl, his young teenage passengers, and his newly rebuilt “bush” aircraft.

Survival in this rugged landscape in one of the last great wildernesses of North America took guts and courage and luck. Eli and Lori found themselves in circumstances few have experienced since the last great Ice Age. A wolf pack and its leader dogged their trail and sought to kill what had invaded their secluded domain. Tomorrow was not promised to these two teenagers as they fought to survive the challenges of the Last Great Frontier. Here, where silences reign supreme, the howl of the ferocious Alaskan wolf is a threat to be reckoned with.
