Battling the depravity of humanity is as important as battling the cruelty of nature in this story of survival powered to explore forces of loss, family, friendship, leadership, community, hope, forgiveness and attainment.
Four children, survivors of cataclysmic natural disasters, embark on a long and arduous journey to escape death and destruction, and to find a habitable land for a safe and secure future. As other travelers join them, they journey together harmoniously, fulfilling their needs for food, water, safety, direction and companionship.
But everything is threatened when, under the guise of being helpers and protectors, two older boys join them and take control of the group with selfish and vile intent.
When one of the original travelers mysteriously receives detailed instructions regarding the route they should travel, he knows he must gain the upper hand in order to guide them to their new home - which proves to be a dangerous undertaking with consequences both tragic and rewarding.

About the Author

Michael Thomas Tower is a playwright whose works have been staged in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and other U.S. cities. He is also actor, director, composer, photographer, graphic designer, videographer, traveler, cook, father, grandfather and step-great-grandfather.
Early intentions and education aimed Michael toward the religious ministry but he soon abandoned that course and carved out a career in insurance administration before establishing himself in print graphics. He is now "retired from the stuff one must do" and lives in the rural mountains of eastern San Diego County, California, with his husband and their pampered and adorable near-perfect cat.
Children of the Valley is his first novel.
