About the author:
As an Information Technology executive, Glenn R. Petrucci was sometimes criticized for his intimidating demeanor and for lacking a "sense of urgency." He attributes his critics' erroneous allegations to their diminished capacity to appreciate cynicism or comprehend the humor of hardware failures. Over the course of his career he has produced countless white papers, product test plans, user guides, quality analysis reports, and strategic planning documents, many of which surely should have been classified as fiction. He has also written several short stories which were actually intended to be fictional works. Timecachers, his first full-length novel, is the result of the encouragement by friends and family to continue writing.
Glenn has resided in many of these United States and has enjoyed discovering the treasures of each of them, hiking through the Southwestern deserts, biking in the mountains of the South, and touring the Northeast's historical sites. In addition to writing, his more sedentary activities include reading a good story, watching classic movies, and indulging in a glass of cheap red wine. Still a geek at heart, he enjoys keeping up with the latest consumer technology developments, scoffing at most of them as needless and trivial but buying them anyway. He is devoted to his wife and best friend, Kathy.

It was breakthrough technology, but where would it lead them?
When Adam Hill of Overhill Engineering accepted the assignment to test the innovative device, he knew the project would be exciting, but this was far beyond his team’s expectations. A handheld navigation device with the ability to provide precise location information anywhere on earth—or anywhere in the universe—without the need of a supporting satellite system!
“We’ve discovered some interesting anomalies that may actually enhance the unit’s functionality,” said Dr. Odan, the enigmatic inventor of the LANav device. “We need engineers who are familiar with hardware and software testing, as well as an aptitude for outdoor activities, such as backpacking, orienteering, and survival skills. They will also need practical knowledge of early American history.”
As avid outdoorsmen and geocachers, Adam’s team was well suited to the project. Field testing the device would require them to travel to the remote mountains of northwest Georgia, where wilderness skills would understandably be required. But what possible need for knowledge of early American history could there be?
They soon discover the device has the capability to lead them not only to any destination—but to any time—in this case May, 1838, the beginning of the Cherokee Indian Removal.
