The Teleportation of an American Teenager: A Novel for All Ages by Andrew J. Rodriguez
In the 1920's the spirit of a Druid high priest from ancient Ireland vests upon Ivan McKinley-an Irish-American teenager, the gift of traveling through time by way of the subconscious. Their mission: Prevent history from repeating itself.
Share Ivan's exotic experiences as he travels the Silk Road during the Middle Ages. Cross the Taklamakan - the largest and most abominable desert on Earth. Startle your wits with the bizarre traditions of the Mongols. Meet a barbarian beauty Ivan tries to change into a graceful lady of noble birth. Would they end up in a passionate love affair against all odds?
Spend three months at an ancient monastery the friars of which consider it a preamble to Paradise. Wear your favorite costume at a carnival in Venice. Meet historical figures in a way you'd never thought possible - away from history books. And above all, evaluate the past from your own viewpoint.
Welcome to Ivan's dreams. Welcome to the wisdom of the ages! --00--
