Reaching The Shore

A Story of Survival, Courage and Endurance

Reaching The Shore

This is the story of Davin J. Douma and his incredible journey.

When Davin was 16 years old, he was convicted of killing a man and sentenced to life in prison. While in the county jail awaiting trial, Davin’s appendix burst. He laid on a cold cell floor in severe pain for days unattended. Then, when it was almost too late, he was in a hospital where he was fed intravenously for five months.

Weighing only 90 pounds after being in the hospital, he was sent to a dangerous maximum-security prison with adult prisoners. Only one out of a hundred juveniles with life sentences ever come out of this type of prison. Many die and others are never released in Oklahoma where Davin was imprisoned.  He used his intelligence and people skills to survive.

Book 3: Too Late, Tomorrow Is Today

Humans are very bad at preparing for disasters when warned. They wait until the event happens before they act. Then it is too late and the costs too high. The cost is likely be the annihilation of life on Earth. The powerful leaders and masters of civilizations have raced toward destruction with overwhelming zeal. Greed was the focus. Greed drove them to ignore the science.

Laurel Campbell, the protagonist, through her research of climate science realized that Earthships could save many lives because they are off the grid-self contained in-ground fortresses. She became an architect, then spent months in New Mexico building Earthships. Then in 2030 she and her family moved to a 25 acre farm they had inherited from her grandparents where they started a commune of like-minded survivalists including family, friends and immigrants fleeing destroyed countries.

Forester, Laurel’s engineer father and a retired military man used the latest technology with AI, computers and drones to build an infrastructure with a small army of people able to defend themselves. As secure as they felt, with the loss of the ice in the Artic… a switch was flipped and Laurel’s family and friends became terrified as the ‘Ring of Fire’ in the Pacific erupted. Laurel now realizes the sixth extinction is upon them and they will need the help of a supercomputer, the latest technology, androids and robots to survive.
