"Literature is a luxury; fiction is a necessity."
WWI veteran Elijah Cooper searches for peace and solace on the African Savanna. His pursuit is thwarted when he finds himself blackmailed into service by a Machiavellian aristocrat. Charged with the care of the aristocrat’s petulant son, Cooper safaris into the Holy Mountains, only to be dislocated by a time fracture. With the aristocrat’s son lost, and nothing familiar to orient him, Cooper must set out through perilous and lavish wilds, beset by war and with prehistoric monsters. Old foes resurface alongside Roman legions and Neanderthal hordes, prompting Cooper to lead by example and curb tyranny in all its unholy forms.
