I found "The Sand Tower" to be a very unique and wonderful adventure/sci-fi story. I loved how it transcended time, bringing the past, present and future together utilizing descriptive, innovative and imaginative writing that effectively engulfs the reader. Congratulations to Mr. Coleman. I am looking forward to the next adventure!
Phil Coleman captures the pure joy of whitewater kayaking and weaves a mystical journey that carries the reader along the rushing stream to the very end. You have to marvel at the mind that created this complex, compelling book! Time travel takes you back to the early days of the Cheat River and sweeps you around the country, the world, and into the future - the story line is truly one Class V rapid after another. I, too, found it hard to put down. Is it science fiction, fantasy, an ode to whitewater paddling, a story of fathers and sons, revenge and redemption? Yes to all... what next, Phil Coleman?
Wow! This book captured my interest as a whitewater paddler and proud resident of West Virginia. It then captured my imagination, as it transported me from the Sahara Desert in the 21st Century back to pre-colonial Central America then back to the present day whitewater stomping grounds of West Virginia. It was hard to put down.. I hated to get to the end .. and can't wait for a sequel.. Thank you Phil Coleman! You have transformed the sport of whitewater kayaking to a grandiose mystical adventure.
The Sand Tower is a compelling and thought-provoking read, with lots of great whitewater descriptions. I would highly recommend for anyone who enjoys suspenseful adventure stories or likes reading about river running! I even stayed up past my bedtime to finish the book.
Definitely a good read. For those who just want to be entertained it has action, suspense and everything needed for a captivating story, including humor. But for those who want it, there is also food for thought on a variety of subjects from religion to ecology and politics. Much more than just worth the read.
