A faded picture sets in motion a perilous journey for five young men, who not only encounter harrowing adventure in the forbidden Niagara Gorge, but are forced to confront the swirling illusions of the world and the God they knew--changing their lives forever.
Journeys across Niagara brings together a series of historical events, in a twist of mystery and revelation, with a group of 1962 teenagers caught up in a changing world around them.
The ice-bridge of Niagara Falls--steeped in history, fraught with tragedy--lures them from a world they know into the mysterious Niagara Gorge. As in a time machine, they enter an exhilarating world of massive ice sculptors, impassable rapids, and unassailable walls of ice. Coming face-to-face with the mighty falls, they emerge in a struggle of life and death with a Niagara they never knew existed.
Peeling back time, you will meet the hermit living on the falls, achieving his 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 girl riding the Underground Railroad. Cultures clash when the path of a young soldier converges with a young Iroquois brave at Devil's Hole massacre.
More than a simple tale of camaraderie and adventure, this is a fascinating tale rich in both historical fact and stories of visitors journeying through Niagara into the tapestry of Kevin and his friends search to find what God really is in their lives. Journeys across America is a kaleidoscope journey of adventure and history exploring the questions confronting people of all ages.
