About the Book

Nearly twenty thousand years ago, at the end of the last Ice Age, when vast glaciers still held much of the world in their grip, the forces of passion and power collide, creating a love triangle between a powerful human king and two of the great spirits of the earth: Nokomis, the Gentle Spirit of the Earth, and Tohopka, the Wild Spirit of the Earth. Jealousy and the lust for power drive a vengeful chase and consuming conflict that span a lifetime and two continents. This is a story that takes love and revenge to the limits of the human heart. The final desperate attempt at justice rains environmental destruction on the planet and fuels a desire for domination that still resides deep in the hearts of much of mankind to this day. This is the story of where humankind’s war on nature begins.

About the Author

With passions for nature and the exploration of the human heart, Machak takes the reader on a historical journey to times long forgotten while unearthing the deepest desires and searing storms that outline the human soul. In WilderSkies, the ethereal presence of higher spiritual energies meets the darker earthiness of the untamed human heart in this ambitious telling. Joel brings his decades of writing experience and endless curiosity about life and the human condition to a story that may just change the way you look at your relationship with nature. His previous novels, Upheaval and Civilization Starship, both carry his stamp of pulling back the curtain on the human heart. The work he has done has been honored internationally and sits in the permanent collection at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington DC.
