Max Novak, an aging widower has totally withdrawn from society, moved to the North Carolina Mountains and made himself a paradise, totally independent from the power grid; all this after losing his mate in a suspicious accident on the very day he had sold his Lake Burton, Georgia lakeside cabin for one million dollars.
When a representative of the Nantahalla Power Company is discovered marking a line right through the center of Max’s property with orange plastic tape to make way for a 375 kilowatt power line that will cross right through Max’s land, as well as through his immediate neighbor’s, a full blooded Cherokee Indian named, Chief Whitecloud, who lives with his daughter, Nicole, Max is forced to get involved with his tiny community of Lake Nantnahalla, in order to try, against all odds, to stop the power company. With the law of eminent domain on their side, the power company becomes a formidable adversary.
This work, albeit in a fiction setting is not far from the reality today in a world of division politcally, greed, racial discrimination and lust for wanton power struggle. We urge anyone who enjoys a great read which touches upon and brings to mind so many human and autocratic elements, to buy a copy now!
