An ancient book is lost and then found, and its discovery sets in motion a family's quest that will last centuries, resulting in death, destruction and downright depression for everyone else. What if you knew the ultimate truth of the Universe? What if you had the capability of affecting everyone else on Earth? What would you do with that knowledge? The Hauptleiter family asked themselves these very questions ever since they acquired ownership of the Book, yet all the while going about their business of world domination. But now the real authors of the Book have deemed it time for them to relinquish it, and the implications abound as to what this means for the rest of humanity, particularly a very small subset of humans. Marlo and Vince Teller have just moved to Oregon from Ohio in a desperate search for some new meaning of their lives. Even after losing everything when their business failed, they persevered and retained some small hope that something good would eventually happen in their lives, that they still had time to help their autistic son Kyle cope with his own uncertain future. David Weatheridge, a down-and-out British journalist presently going through the motions of trying to keep his career afloat, would appear to be an unlikely candidate to do anything remotely connected with world salvation. But that is exactly where he finds himself when he encounters a trio of overly friendly auditors who coax him on a train bound for Oregon. What is going to happen in Oregon? And why is beer even related to the outcome? Craig Swartz weaves an engaging and humorous tale that explores our origins and searches for an elusive answer to that one endlessly nagging question; why are we here? His otherworldly story involves all the aforementioned people and a cast of others who end up discussing and learning about aliens, autism, conspiracy, fear, greed, love, peace, philosophy, racism, reincarnation, spiritualism and war.
