Author's Synopsis

Circa 1312, Abu Bakr II, the ruler of the Mali Empire in Africa sailed across the Atlantic Ocean in an attempt to circumnavigate the world. Some of his ships landed at the mouth of the Rio Grande between today's Texas and Mexico where he began an overland trip to the Pacific Ocean. He brought his caravan of elephants and camels up the valley, through New Mexico to the Chama River Valley, impacting the many Indian villages along the way. His caravan crossed the Continental Divide and continued westward following the San Juan River into Utah. Due to narrow canyons he had to travel south of the Grand Canyon to the lower Colorado River reaching the Gulf of California. He then crossed over Baja California to the Pacific Ocean. The proof is written in stone in Mande/Mandinka, the official language of the Mali Empire. It appears to be the first written description of a flood in the Western Hemisphere.

Author's Synopsis

 One June day at the mid-point of the twentieth century, the uneasy peace that settled over the "Land of the Morning Calm" was shattered by an act of aggression. Not far away, on the "Islands of the Rising Sun" the first tremors of conflict resonated. In response to the vague menace, an army of occupation from a previous war was ordered into action, forever altering the lives of those called upon to respond. The novel is an intense account of the early stages of the Korean War candidly presented without pretense or heroic embellishment. The saga provides a unique fictional journey that traces the lives of two young American soldiers, who from a common beginning diverge to their separate fates: one heroic and the other treasonous. Involved in the course of action is a diverse cast of related characters, military and civilian, foreign and native, each confronting a range of moral issues, which include courage and sacrifice, misbehavior and intrigue, love and lust. The tragic drama evolves over a realm that extends from the backstreets of Yokohama to the power center of Japan: the Dai Ichi building in Tokyo, to the treacherous landscape of Korea. The vivid portrayal of events is a captivating fictional experience that serves to inform, entertain and reveal a largely disregarded time and place in history.
