Ancestors of Gods

An Early American habitation site is discovered in the foothills southwest of Denver. Excavation at the cavern is supervised by Lisa Trayer, an archaeologist with the Colorado Museum of Natural History. In an effort to secure funding for the project, Lisa agrees to a partnership with the Chapleton Institute, a religious fundamentalist organization that seeks to merge science and religion. ANCESTORS OF GODS describes the science-religion conflict that builds between Lisa and Fred Walcott, the representative of the Chapleton Institute, as work on the archaeological site proceeds.

The conflict receives an ironic twist when Lisa and Fred are trapped inside the cavern when the back of a passageway collapses. As the air runs out and they lose consciousness, both experience separate spiritual journeys. While Lisa’s near-death-experience (NDE) is a vision of what life was probably like 13,000 years ago, Fred has a more typical NDE in which he goes to heaven and learns valuable lessons from the heavenly ‘Beings of Light’. ANCESTORS OF GODS combines current scientific discoveries and intelligent design theories with interesting characters who reflect diverging views of man and his spiritual nature.
 

Campbell's Gold

In the early 1900s, Dick Campbell acquired the Hidden Treasure, a previously mined gold mine near Silverton, Colorado. Although previous miners believed that they had mined all the gold that was present, Dick was convinced there was more gold to be found. Dick encountered both human and natural challenges: claim jumpers, an avalanche, being trapped underground, and a mine flood. At the age of 78, he finally found his rich vein of gold but mysteriously died before he could tell anyone.

Thirty years later, Dick’s grandson, Kevin McNair, a geology professor, inherits the mine. With the help of graduate student Sara Wakefield, Kevin renews the search for the gold his grandfather believed was there. Unknown to Kevin, he has drawn the attention of two brothers who decide to kill him to protect a secret. Campbell’s Gold will keep you reading to solve the mysteries of Dick’s death and the elusive gold.
