A novel by Michael McKay
The spirited quest of a Peruvian hunter-gatherer
It’s 12,800 years ago… Jung, a boy from The Cloud Forest in southern Peru, becomes separated from his tribe when a star hits Earth.
Battling floods, earthquakes and below-freezing conditions, Jung goes in search of his father who he lost the day before the impact. Retracing his father’s footsteps, he travels to Lake Titicaca where he encounters Kon-Tiki, a strange-looking man who claims to have sailed from the other side of Earth.
Kon-Tiki tells Jung he has come to Peru to build a pyramid—a machine connected to the pyramids in Egypt and Angkor Wat—capable of taking a passenger to any time and place in the universe. He promises Jung a ticket to use the pyramid to find his father if he can retrieve a piece of the star that hit Earth.
With his own reasons to visit the crash site, Jung agrees to the deal and journeys north. As things unravel, however, it becomes clear not all is what it seems.
Based on real events documented by Graham Hancock in his books: Fingerprints of the Gods, Magicians of the Gods and America Before.
A book about consciounsess and mortality.
A classic Crichton-like adventure… Apocalypto meets The Alchemist.
