The idea was simple: build a pyramid in an arid, forbidding land, fill it with humankind’s knowledge, and leave the structure alone for centuries. Eventually some future society would find the unnatural mountain, worship it, and at last open it to reveal the treasures of the mind contained inside.

It was a gift to the future- the gift that keeps on taking.Pokalura was raised in the shadow of the pyramid, his people referring to the onyx circle that dominates the surface of the cone as the Eye of the Maker. His fellow citizens are not yet willing to open the Eye and Pokalura wanders across the continent searching for evidence of the human builders of the mountain. He finds his answers among a tribe of “ghosts,” light-skinned men and women who have been waiting for centuries for a representative from the Ark to appear to lead them back to their promised land.Major Maren and Captain Cassum are two of the “hard men” who guard the same mountain—they call it the Ark—nearly a thousand years before Pokalura is born.

The hard men must deal with the “departure” of the crews who build the Ark, the worsening conditions driving people into the desert in search of cold war government rations, and their own passions and impending mortality.
