Sinopsis:

The ice bridge of Niagara Falls - steeped in history, fraught with tragedy, challenged by daredevils, lures five young men from the world they know into the mysterious Niagara Gorge. After an encounter with the mighty Falls, they emerge in a struggle of life and death with a Niagara they never knew existed.

Peeling back time, meet the hermit living on the Falls in a quest to become one with it; experience the day the Falls stopped, exploring a riverbed never before exposed -- until the water returns in a frenzy; witness slavery through the eyes of a runaway riding the ''Underground Railroad''; and feel the clash when the path of a drummer boy converges with an Iroquois brave at the ''Devil's Hole'' massacre.

Author d k LeVick creates a tale rich in both historical fact and ingenious fiction. LeVick brings together a series of historical events, a twist of mystery, and a group of teenagers caught up in a changing world. You might just hear the ice crack and feel a tremor beneath your feet.

About the Author:

''Being born and raised in the Niagara Frontier, I grew up on the Upper Niagara River and spent my formative years as a 'river rat', not in awe, but in fear of the mighty Cataract, viewing it as a threat to my Upper river escapades. More than once, we barely escaped the swift current while tubing down the river or fishing Navy Island in a rubber raft.

The Falls was to be avoided at all costs. That perspective changed the first time I went down into the gorge below the Falls (during summer of course -- I wasn't as crazy as the 'boys' were to go in winter). There, like Saul on the road to Damascus, I was overcome by the wonder of the river and consumed by the mystery of it.

Focused on raising a family in Niagara, I wrote for myself over the years. This story, now I give to you. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have in writing it.''--dk LeVick
