The woods are so wild, it’s impossible to behold them without terror.
Sapphire, NC (PRWEB) November 05, 2013
Lyle Fugleberg uses fiction to address real-world problems, problems that begin with environmental realities, then allude to human frailties including politic instability and religious intolerance, in his new novel, “These Truths” (published by iUniverse).
Thousands of years after humankind has been almost obliterated, there comes a second chance in the Garden of Eden, a world recovered of 21st century degradations. From a sacred sanctum – an incubator complex buried in a mountain – a group of carefully selected young adults awaken to address that chance.
Known as the Chosen, this group undertakes the greatest challenge mankind has ever attempted. Knowing that the proven nature of man will lead to his eventual failure, a factor that threatens the Eden of his inheritance, the mission is almost insurmountable.
These brave men and women must survive in a world that nature has reclaimed. As Daniel Boone said in his day, “The woods are so wild, it’s impossible to behold them without terror.” With all the subtleties and hurdles and dangers, the greatest part of the challenge is, as it always has been, man and the bad wolf within him. Effort and intention, and goodness will not be enough … there will be blood.
