Jake Machan is developing telepathic abilities. The hidden Controllers of Planet Earth are out to get him. Dead or alive.
Caledonia 1849, and seventeen year old Jake Machan flees Government troops who search his village for Telepaths.
On the run, he discovers that an Order of Royal Priests have manipulated major events in the world for thousands of years.
Escaping his enemies, he is transported five thousand miles through hyperspace, to California's 1849 Gold Rush. Even here, he is pursued.
With help from a Shaman's daughter he discovers the truth about the origins of humanity. In the far distant past, an Alien Race discovered Earth and through their Royal Priests, took control. There are signs that they are still here.
With far superior technology, why do they fear Jake? Why do they fear Humanities telepathic awakening?
