About the Book

In 1973, on a remote beach in Australia, a group of surfers gather for another day of adventure, friendship, and adrenaline. Bear, LP, Mason, Brownie, and George and their friends, a testosterone-amped community of surfers and bikers, live on the dangerous side of the law, both by choice and by necessity. But what happens that day has nothing to do with surfing. A chance discovery is about to change their lives—and end a few of them.

At a bora ring, an ancient Aboriginal ceremonial site in outback Queensland, an artefact waits to be found. Perhaps the Scroll even waits for them to find it. But in the discovery, each man faces his own curiosity. Has the Dreamtime seeped into the world? Can they trust Tibrogargan, Brownie’s ancient Dreamtime ancestor? What messages are the women trying to share, and are the women even real?

That night, the men find more questions than answers. Their quest for understanding takes them on a four-decade journey of exploration around the world. Mysticism, spiritualism, drugs, sex, and violence are but distractions in their quest to save the Scroll. In the year 2010, the Scroll will give up one of its many secrets—and when one of the men realizes that his participation in this quest was foretold by Nostradamus himself, they will all learn that their adventure is far from over.
