About this book

In an effort to curb global warming, the innovators of tomorrow overshot the mark and now the Earth is cooling. The ambitious have adjusted their sights to focus on adaptation to falling temperatures, and a young engineer takes it upon himself to move from New York City to Wyoming in order to develop solutions on the front lines. Torn between a quirky disposition and a stated desire for positive impact, this is a bildungsroman set against a backdrop of mountains, visionaries, and a settlement of forgotten Mongolians; a story about what is gained and what is taken when one yearns to believe that a small group can change the world.

A gem of a novel!
By Nancy 4 Jun 2018 Written for Paperback

This novel's new author has crafted a dystopian story that feels eerily modern day. The story cleverly highlights the consequences of human intervention on our environment. In the midst of the story's environmental disturbances, the human condition of characters trying to do the right thing shines through. A must read for anyone who cares about our natural world, and cares about how we as humans care for that world.

Biography

Recently I published my first book, called The Yellowstone Group. While the book is set in Manhattan and Wyoming, I drew a lot of inspiration for it from the various places I've lived: almost all of which have suffered environmental degradation that is visible to the naked eye for anyone living there.

The not so distant future has always interested me more than any other slice of humanity's past or present. Despite the central premise of the book – a cooling earth – there is nothing radically different or fantastic about it relative to settings that actually exist today.

I've been fortunate to be exposed to a lot of great books and people that I'm sure influenced what I ended up writing. Permanent authors on my bookshelf include Melville, Murakami, and Christopher Paolini.

Since I was a teenager, the prospect of fully conceiving of a different world and bringing it to life was a task I found both daunting and fascinating, so I'm excited to now finally be able to share this project I've been working on for the last several years.
