About the Book

Paradigm Lost: Jamari Shaman is an adventure in future, post-apocalyptic Oregon. Jamari enters into the challenges and training regimen that will teach him to be a fully functional adult member of his tribal community. He learns how his village supports itself in a non-industrial society after the fall of civilization eighty years before. He takes a journey through the Oregon lands to the coastal areas to render and gather salt for his tribe. Along the way, he learns of the boundaries and expansion of tribal lands and also encounters other peoples who live outside the tribal influence, sometimes with disastrous interactions. Along the physical journey, he is also taking a personal journey into his own spirit and soul, surprising himself and others with unsuspected talents and skills that exceed expectations. When he emerges from this physical and spiritual journey, he will become Jamari Shaman, a respected spiritual leader of his tribe.

About the Author

About the Author R. Roderick Rowe studied writing in college for several years, working as assistant editor, then editor for his college’s literary magazine. He also spent a term as copy editor for his campus newspaper. He is a gay man and uses this “affliction” to build characters and situations in his fictional work. Throughout his career in writing, Rowe has published a number of short stories and poems, as well as a technical manual for power plant employees. Paradigm Lost, penned under a pseudonym, is far different in genre and style than anything he has written before.
