About the Book

Human history is traced from our once-upon-a-time origins, through the great disaster that nearly wiped the human race from the planet. From an insignificant family of displaced nomads, kings and poets arise who will shape human destiny. Fascinating characters, fast moving action and sparkling humor track the thread of the original Bible story, allowing the narrative to live afresh today.
