Overview

This chronicle portrays a timeless allegory. In this telling, the events transpire in the tiny, sovereign, country of Lelonia, which has anguished in turmoil for decades. The call goes out for citizens to submit plans to rebirth the country. A pair of unconventional teenagers takes up the challenge; Marcus – brilliant, insightful, optimistic – and his life long closest friend, Thomas – smarter than average, well read, pessimistic. Being young, naïve, and fully inexperienced in the ways of politics, they thereby posses sufficient qualifications for creating a fresh, practical, approach to government.
They hike their country listening and observing to determine the problems and discover the positive possibilities. They experience real dangers in a lawless land, the anguish and terror of the homeless, hungry, children, and witness the atrocities of the Despicables – amoral, roaming bands of bandits. They sense the indomitable spirit of Lelonia, poised to surface and soar again under a hope-filled, charismatic, leader.
They create a socio-governmental system based in positive social values, which they call Mutual Facilitation. Their plan is selected. Marcus becomes the new Leader.
The story follows these characters through the ups and downs of the next forty years.
Life became Eden-like in Lelonia, until hostile forces gather.

Editorial Reviews

email - Robert Carter
A book that reads like good fiction but which includes many postulates of crucial current relevance. It illustrates a citizen-centered society and government based on citizen-centered, common sense, where everybody's needs and capacities are considered. It spells out a system of social values, the author believes is necessary for society and government to serve its citizens well. In the small country of Lelonia, neighbors take good care of each other. A fascinating concept often called love.

Meet the Author

Septuagenarian, Tom Gnagey, writes under several pennames varying by genre. With nearly seventy novels and nonfiction books in the current marketplace he is one of today’s most prolific writers. His days as an author began long before his adult career as a clinical psychologist and, in fact, before he could even write, as his mother dutifully took down the stories he would spin after getting into bed at night. Bedtime stories, therefore, mean something quite different to Tom than they do to most folks. He continues to write every day from his modest home in the Ozark Mountains.
Tom prefers a simple life and spends his free time speaking, drawing, sculpting, and volunteering in child-help programs. Writing, however, is his passion and he would write every day whether anyone else ever read a word of it. He bases his writing, like his life, on a positive social philosophy and has written about that extensively. The dozen plus novels in the Raymond Masters Detective Series are among his most widely read books. Tom has penned uncountable short stories in a variety of genre.
His pennames include: Gary Hutchison, G.F. Hutchison, Garrison Flint, Grampa Gray, Marc Miller, Bonnie Brewster, David Drake, and Thomas Atherton.
