LOVE AND BETRAYAL IN A TIME OF EPIC FLOODS. During the Ice Age, the Missoula Floods ravaged much of eastern Washington State. Native people, recently arrived in North America, faced disaster when glacial ice dams broke and floodwaters as vast as the Great Lakes rushed out.
MEGAFLOOD tells the tale of two young people, driven from their village for a forbidden love, whose flight from an angry chieftain leads them into greater danger. The story unfolds on two levels, one in the modern world where archeologists discover an amulet charm on a body unearthed in a coastal bog. The other takes place in the ancient world, where a mysterious shamanic spirit describes hardships the young couple faced.
MEGAFLOOD is a multi-layered, spellbinding tale with authentic portrayals of ancient people, modern-day researchers, and the fierce animals that once lived alongside humans -- mammoths, giant bears, cave lions, and sabertooth cats.
Thomas P. Hopp has researched his subject thoroughly to give an accurate portrayal of the people and animals of those ancient times.
