Title: Great Falls

Author: John Lopas

Published: June 26th 2013 by Outskirts Press

This book starts with an accident. Which sends Dakota (MC) to the past; a modern gadget threatening his future.

Setting: Great Falls National Park, Virginia.

Dakota Wesley drops his kayak into the river’s shallow edge. Below him the waterfalls roar in nature’s fury. Shaking off last-second jitters, he peels out into the water, the fast current sweeping his boat downstream and into the realm of no turning back chasing the big whitewater thrill. But then something goes terribly wrong…

When he comes to, Dakota finds that his modern surroundings have vanished. Instead, he discovers the Virginia landscape of an era long past nearly 150 years earlier a time torn by civil war. In order to survive, he joins another man, desperate plight, and together they fend off starvation, foraging parties, and locals who question Dakota’s identity. Desperate to return to his future, Dakota finds hope in the form of a modern gadget, one that can change his fortunes. But it may also lead to his demise.

Expertly weaving a passion for the great outdoors with historical events, Great Falls is a unique and compelling new novel of unexpected journeys and chance encounters. John Lopas pursues his passions with an imaginative mind that incorporates his love of art, music, history, and literature. While whitewater kayaking the Potomac River and its tributaries, as well as exploring and hiking through Virginia and Maryland, he found the perfect backdrop for an encompassing tale along the Potomac River in the greater Washington D.C. area.

This book was such a fast read!!! And was full of adventure, different time zones, and very different from what I’m used to reading!!

Wow!!! I need to read more books like this, because seriously, these type of books are really interesting!!
