"Set in a near-future Kansas beset by catastrophic climate change, this novel of ever-shifting realities explores how individual choices affect society, how careerism and academic ambition affect medical experiments, and how local solutions affect global problems"--Back cover.
Summary Set in Kansas in the year 2039, this science fiction novel places ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances when massive tornadoes and global flooding have altered the earth's ecosystem. Two protagonists try to confront their pasts to fix their broken lives in the present. Using a combination of natural resources, ancient rituals, and futuristic technology, one character revises his past decisions to alter his present self. This narrative shows how individual choices can alter wider reality, and how community and local economy can offer an alternative to the economic and environmental dystopia the characters find themselves in.--Publisher description.
