He is humanity’s crowning achievement.
He is an intelligent, sentient being.
And, he is about to be killed.
In a similar vein as works by Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein and Michael Crichton, this story focuses on the ethical dilemmas of playing God and the pitfalls of advancing technology without care and appropriate safeguards. It probes the many challenges that face our global societies today.
Blue Mountain: Ruth's Story is an epic tale based on the memoirs of Cate's mother, who grew up under extreme circumstances. The original book was written with the intention of being a family keepsake, but generated so much interested that Cate is now revising the manuscript for general publication, intending to release this amazing story to the world.
In this narrative nonfiction tale, Ruth and her little brother, along with their parents, face adversity and tragedy while they pioneer remote regions in depression-era and wartime Canada. The family is triumphant in many ways but their losses are substantial, and in some cases, far too high. Ruth’s story is one wild adventure after another through time and places long since changed or devoured by progress. It is a remarkable tale about love, faith, and a small family’s struggle to conquer overwhelming odds. It is a story about a family that lives on the road, lives on the run, lives on practically nothing to chase a rustic dream. This book promises to deliver a fabulous journey from the first line to the last, and the truest events in this tale are often the most unbelievable. Blue Mountain is where truth truly rivals fiction.
