Lost in Time: Trapped in a Prehistoric World
Dan Arthur Busby, author
By 2040, the US corrections system had found an unbeatable way to save money. Simply send them out of the present world. ..send them to a very ancient past world. Time travel technology had blossomed, but was exclusively used by the government. Men like Jimmy Dantly had been highly educated in the field, and worked for the government, doing research and maintenance. For Jimmy, everything was turning up roses, until a freak accident at work turned his world upside down. A coworker was killed, and the evidence pointed to Jimmy, though he was innocent. He felt certain he would be exonerated , but the investigation and subsequent trial seemed to prove his guilt. The final blow, from a southern California judge, sent him reeling. The judge sentenced him to be sent to the Cretaceous period of history…the most active time for dinosaurs. Jimmy could do nothing other than cooperate. As he walked through the doors of the transport chamber, he shook his head, knowing he himself had helped build them. Suddenly he was thrust into a completely different world. He was fortunate to hook up with a fellow prisoner. Rick had survived a year there, and teamed up with Jimmy for better odds of staying alive. The two witnessed the arrival of a third inmate, Glen. Glen and Jimmy were each given high powered rifles by a sympathetic transporter attendant. Each man had specific skills that helped the group survive. Step by step they formulated and executed plans, first for safety, and then for escape from the primitive and violent world they lived in. This story shows what the human spirit can endure, and how ingenious the mind can be. It reaches the depth of terror, and the height of elation. These men combined their strengths to reach impossible goals, overcoming odds against them with their wit.
