Time travelers from the dried-out, over-populated year 2233 are shipwrecked on a European continent that is a sea of green, a sensory overload of natural beauty. Home to huge herds of bison, antelope, deer, outsized Mega-fauna and forests without end, it is a land unspoiled.
Leaving a trail of carnage as he preaches his warped brand of religion to a growing Cro-Magnon army, empire builder Lorenzo Martinelli takes his campaign into the boot of pre-historic Italy. The madman’s modern shipmates face many challenges as they attempt to stop him before he disrupts the future of mankind.

Living with Neanderthal, surviving blizzard and shark attack, time travelers shipwrecked in the Pleistocene take two very different journeys north to the land of ice and snow. In Gibraltar, the third installment of the 30,000 B.C. Chronicles, the scientific explorers search for evidence of a rescue mission sent back to save them.
Matthew Thayer's imagination is as sharp, sweeping and powerful as the cameras that have made him an award-winning photojournalist. In the 30,000 B.C. Chronicles, he creates a unique world in fascinating detail, where ancient and modern worlds collide in one thrilling adventure after another.

Award-winning Matthew Thayer has written a book that goes far beyond science fiction. The 30,000 B.C. Chronicles combines the best aspects of Swiss Family Robinson and Star Trek. You'll find yourself loving some of the fully fleshed characters and detesting the villains at the center of the religious mystery. It's a page-turner that's hard to put down.

I was excited, fascinated and taken by his thrilling and rich story - I couldn't put it down until I finished this outstanding book. As a European social scientist and also a well-traveled anthropological geograph, I was amazed by the absolute perfect research of the European/Mediterranean area at that time. What also impresses me deeply are the different and complex characters of the people: it's a very precise and vital analysis of the modern time travelers as well as our ancient ancestors. The story is written with empathy for human beings and with an example of honest ethical values, which are timeless. Therefore, I think his book is quite actual even though the story takes place 32,000 years ago.

It should come with a warning label . . . there is a risk of a sleepless night totally immersed in Matthew Thayer’s engaging story.
