A science fiction novel set in the year 2181.
A Dr. is awarded a Harvard grant to travel to Mars, to research the physiology of a long dead race of beings, whose recorded history is contained within the immense Face on Mars.
While there, an ancient time/space travel device is discovered; which is how the Martians explored the universe when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. My Dr. is now awarded a N.S.F. grant to use it, to travel to Earth in the year 2013, and solve a medical mystery known as The Alaskan Plague of 2012.
But while there, religious fanatics in 2181 Mars have destroyed the time/space device. He is now stranded in a strange and primitive world- ours- 168 years and 150 million miles from his family. How will he survive? And how will he heal without using 22nd century medicine to do it, without being detected?
But he has no choice, for he is – THE HEALER.
