AuthorHouse, Mar 12, 2008 - Biography & Autobiography - 344 pages
CUT OFF When Illusions Surviveis a unique study of dynamics evident in every person, group and culture. This story celebrates human resourcefullness as three survivors battle to overcome the destructive sides of their personalities. What would happen if you were isolated and stranded by a major cataclysm with no idea if the rest of the world survived ? This novel is prompted by our experience following the September 11, 2001 (9/11) shut down after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. My wife, our two teenage sons, and I were in a remote Inupiaq Native Alaskan village above the Arctic Circle when all planes were grounded. We were isolated and felt cut off from the rest of the world. My thoughts about the very real possibility that all was lost, brought forth this novel.
