Connection to Illinois: Armstrong lives and works in the suburbs of Chicago. Biography: When not moonlighting as an author, Carl Armstrong teaches high school science. Frequent trips to prairies and forests with a dog, a thermos, and a camera are par for the course. Occasional twenty- or thirty- mile bike rides aren't out of the question when it's warm out.

ISBN: B09S5LZ5NJ OCLC: Dalea Publishing 2022 THE JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME. THE GAMBLE OF A LIFE. Five hundred years from now, Earth's three billion citizens look up to their solar system after centuries of retreating from every environment on the planet. A hushed-up discovery, too impossible to believe, but too important to ignore, sends astrobiology professor Jack Wilson away from his home in Chicago. Alone, he undertakes a quiet journey through a landscape almost nobody has stepped in for centuries: the interior of North America. Success could rewrite history-the world's, and his family's. Failure risks the lives of his friends, including one he hasn't seen for a decade.
