Four years after the bloody Boxer Rebellion of 1900, the wounded lands of China had grown resentful of all things Western. Known as ĎThe Middle Kingdomí to the Chinese people, their capital city was no place for a lone Scotsman.

David was born and raised in the Scottish Highlands where he spends his days enjoying his family, the affections of his true love, Rose, and having an after-dinner drink with friends. Life is good in the brisk-green hillsides of Davidís beloved Scotland.

But Davidís life takes a sharp turn when he discovers his fiancťe sleeping with a relative, leaving David brokenhearted and anxious to follow a recent vision compelling him to the exotic and faraway country known as The Middle Kingdom where the answers to his questions lie.

David sets out on an arduous voyage over land and sea in his search for closure. His aching-heart is the least of his trials when his journey becomes a dangerous quest, encountering pirates, bandits, and a bevy of lusty ladies with questionable motives.

Fighting to keep body and soul intact so that he may realize his predestined purpose, David struggles to reach The Middle Kingdom, or die in the trying.

TJís an ordinary fourteen year old kid with extraordinary problems at home and school. He has a broken family from his parentsí bitter divorce. He faces evil bullies attacking him almost every afternoon, failing grades when heís really a smart kid, boring classes, snobby girls, mean teachers, being cut from basketball tryouts, and few friends. Yes, life is rough for TJ Cockrell.


Then a mysterious green book inexplicably throws TJ into the past. And not just any past, but the untamed forbidding forests of 1802 eastern Tennessee, with savage Indians, wild beasts, bloodthirsty robbers, backwoods ruffians, strange characters galore, and rugged log cabin living. Yup, itís definitely not present day Knoxville Tennessee anymore.


TJ thought his present life was bad news, but his adventures have just begun. Along the way, he fights off killer beasts, bandits and braves, meets the cocky teenaged David Crockett, gains a world of assurance in himself, finds his first real love, and is befriended by a fantastic frontier family who really has it together.


TJ returns to the present a changed young man; emboldened, forthright, and shrewd. Heíll need all of his newfound strengths to fend off killer burglars loose in his house, outwit the school bully, charm a pretty new transfer-student, and most intriguing of all, delve into the mysteries of the magical green book...

The intrepid time-traveler TJ Cockrell is back! But this time itís to rescue his girlfriend, Samantha. Samís unknowingly been blasted into the past by the green book. Itís 1814. All around her Sam sees people stampeding in terror. A White House across the way looks like a shell of the famous building sheís seen on TV, internet, and magazines. What the devilís going on?


Sam soon is catapulted into a fantastical journey: Accompanying soldiers rushing to defend nearby Baltimore, seeing the awesome sight of Old Glory still waving over Fort McHenry, joining a traveling tribe of gypsies, landing briefly in jail in boisterous old New Orleans, and painting portraits of passersby outside the famous Hotel DeVille to survive.


Stunned, TJ discovers Samís been sent into time. But where? When? Trusting the green book, TJ is hurled back, too. Yet Samís nowhere to be found! His own adventure lands him a prisoner of war in Spanish Florida, a captive participant in a bloody attack on a U.S. fort, a member of Jean Lafitteís pirate crew, and a day watchman for a New Orleans jailhouse.


Meanwhile, TJís dad arrives home. Finding both Tege and Sam gone into the past, he must go after them. The chase is on! He lands as a soldier in General Carrollís militia in Tennessee, whoíll face intense fighting at the center of Jacksonís line in the Battle of New Orleans!


Three travelers.  Twisted trails. Will they crisscross before the climatic clash?
