About the book – Escape to Canamith
The planet is rebelling. Mother Nature is angry.
All forms of life are attacking humans and threatening the food and water supply. Professor Lila Jenkins, working for the government’s task force, believes scientific reasoning will provide the explanation for everything. Her father, Rex Templeton, Chief Elder of the isolated citizens of Canamith, is convinced that the two thousand year-old prophecy is coming true; the end of mankind. Lila fled Canamith years ago to pursue a teaching career. Was she justified, or was it the biggest mistake of her life? While Lila frantically searches for answers, Templeton’s followers are preparing to seal the door on a myriad of tunnels within the Mountains of Canamith to provide a safe haven from the devastation.
