Together, Odette and Ron seek the Ancient Ones, praying that the technologically advanced race has the devices to send them back to the future. However, the Ancient Ones though immortal through genetics have met catastrophe due to a deadly disease and are subsequently forced out of at least two cities. Traveling the Hite River surrounded by danger from deadly flora and fauna, the time travelers journey to the city of Florbust in hope of finding an Ancient One.

SAVAGE LAND OF JUR, sequel to the exciting JUR: A STORY OF PREDAWN EARTH, is an exhilarating adventure tale that takes the audience on a deep adventure through the Jurassic Period. The story line is fats paced and loaded with non stop action whether it is surviving a storm raged river, battling flesh eating plants, dueling a giant spider or communicating with native populations. Ron and Odette display their love for one another as both willingly risk life to save their beloved from a precarious situation. Though too many flashbacks to the first tale interferes with the smoothness of the expedition, this is one trek readers will want to join.
