Prequel in the Alcantaran series.
What happens when a damaged space ship lands in your backyard? Would the aliens be friendly? What if you could help repair the space ship? What if a corrupt President and a handful of crooked advisors wanted to take over the area around the space ship so they could bring in their own scientist to exploit the technology in the space ship for their own personal gain? See how Pete and Linda Collins meet these and other challenges as they deal with the news media and swelling crowds around their house with help from the Kalispell, Montana community, some other loyal Americans and the three alien Traders from Dar Es Salaam.

I enjoyed this series and have read it more than once. I consider it an introduction to the introduction to the Compton's Alcantaran Series. That series begins with Alien Abduction. I've enjoyed the entire series. In this story, you meet Pete, family and friends in a small community. The economy has hurt the town, and Pete finds way to help just more than himself and the aliens, while dealing with the corrupt politicians. I've found the stories entertaining, and I'm looking forward to the next in the series.
Wishing I was Pete Collins. Fast paced. Couldn't put it down and read the other 3 books just as fast.
