Flores Girl: The Children God Forgot
Summary: Flores Girl: The Children God Forgot By Erik John Bertel Genre: Adventure Novel The scientists were shocked at the startling fossil discovery: three-foot tall adult human ancestors that inhabited Flores Island only 16,000 year ago! The media ran story after story, including a 60 Minutes segment, about the amazing hobbit find in Indonesia and their recent extinction in Flores. However, the scientists are dead wrong! These archaic people are still alive today and they will be unwittingly introduced by two American researchers to the cruelest of all modern-day predators: humanity! These three-foot tall humans are not the Hobbits of the JRR Tolkienâ€™s stories, but a small tribe of prehistoric people, Homo Floresiensis, living in seeming isolation for nearly a half million years on the Indonesian tropical paradise of IrmÃ£ Flores. In their unrelenting quest for knowledge, Sarah and Richard unintentionally expose these innocents to the onslaught of the modern world including corporate profiteers, ardent religious zealots, and to the pirates of the Flores Sea. In the process of discovering and befriending these ancient people, Sarah and Richard must survive a clash of very divergent egos while reawakening their own fragile humanity and suppressed desire for love. Warning, this adventure novel contains adult themes, language, humor, a strong dose of graphic violence, and a complete disdain for most authority figures. The author narrates the podcast, with an accompanying music soundtrack. For more information about the author and book, you can visit www.floresgirl.com.
