Jack Johnston wakes in the grass, after many journeys ‘deeper’, but not knowing if they were all just a dream. His neighbours, concerned for his sanity, seek to help him regather his mind; as Jack struggles with self-doubt, and his psychologist, trying to make sense of things.

To make things more complicated for this Traveller, the embodiments of some of the Core Essences of life, unseen by others, also seek to educate him. All this, while a deep dark force is finding its way to the threshold of the physical world; to Earth of the Outer Realities. It seeks Jack as a way through, playing with his mind, and feeding on its victims by locking them into terrible places within their own imaginations.

As Jack, Jennifer, and their companions seek answers, they also walk through life on terra firma, discovering the nature of the forces that…initiate and build civilisation, while helping a small neighbourhood to evolve and transform.

Walk the Earth with Jack Johnston as he seeks reality, and as he and others begin to realise the possibilities of local efforts. Find that civilisation, seemingly far from our ability to generate, rises from the ground up. See how it only takes small groups to bring its power to bear.

There is possibility here…It lies in opening our eyes…believing we can…and acting.


“Through adventures and adversity, friendships and loyalties are formed; knowledge and wisdom found.

While these stories are of wild and unreal places, the characters and concepts are very grounded. I find myself often relating to the characters at various times and reflecting on my own life.”

Maureen Barton

“A story of love, friendship, and community building, interlaced with elements of the Baha’i faith.

An enjoyable read with familiar characters, crafted by a man with a tremendous imagination.”

Cathy McEwan
