When worldly, no-nonsense travel agent Pius Bird attends a reenactment of the 1622 massacres near Williamsburg, Virginia, he gets an event far more realistic than he expects. The actors pull the... More > observers into the assault, and as far as Pius can tell, it’s not an act. The violence forces him and a woman he saves into the woods where they stay hidden through the night. When they return the next morning they expect to find police cars and ambulances. Instead, they come upon a new, pristine world, the year 1622, where all signs of the 21st century have disappeared. They come to believe that they have gone back in time and would have to find a way back to their old world. What follows is an adventure of escape, of staying out of Indian wars, of avoiding battles between vengeful Englishmen and Powhatans. Eventually Pius Bird learns that not all things are as they appear.< Less
