The Waters of Chaos is a science mystery tackling the greatest puzzle of all: How did human society evolve from the Ice Ages to today? In short, how did we get to be so smart? The Saga and the Quest take readers on an unconventional romp through science covering vast spans of time. The Waters of Chaos: The Ancient Saga, set at the end of the last Ice Age, brings to life a cast of heroic characters living in that long ago time and coping with the imminent global catastrophe of sea level rise. The Waters of Chaos: The Modern Quest follows twin brothers Jared and Rick Caisson as they search for evidence of a lost civilization beneath the sea, employing the most advanced technologies available. Both stories invoke Egyptian mythology and universal flood myths to connect science and lore. The modern book proposes new and radically different theories, while the ancient book illustrates how those theories may have worked in the real world. Check out the evidence, and you’ll find that almost all of it is true and convincing enough to challenge conventional wisdom. Meanwhile, the two brothers meet head-on the hidebound resistance of fellow scientists, and a close-knit clutch of youngsters grow to adulthood 10,700 years ago in a surprisingly advanced world facing certain disaster. Two youths fall in love and ultimately lead the exodus of their people from the flooded coast to refuge above. Mystery, high- and low-tech adventure, action, romance, sunken pyramids holding the Secrets of the Ages; The Waters of Chaos has them all. The Waters of Chaos consists of two books strategically combined or sold separately. The books are: The Waters of Chaos: the Ancient Saga and The Waters of Chaos: the Modern Quest.

About the Author:

Jeff Dobson heads a firm specializing in communication systems for collaboration during emergencies. He lives in Knoxville, Tennessee, and travels extensively worldwide. He previously headed an international computer firm and has served on the faculties of the Ohio State University, the University of Illinois, and the University of Alaska. Jeff served several terms as an alderman in the town of Farragut, Tennessee. He holds a Ph.D. in geography from the University of Georgia. He has conducted fieldwork in the Arctic regions of Europe and North America as well as deserts in the southwestern U.S. His business travels often take him to the Middle East. He served as a Lieutenant in the United States Navy. Jerry Dobson is an innovator and popular writer in the fields of geography and geographic information science. He is a professor of geography at the University of Kansas and president of the American Geographical Society, America’s oldest geographic association. He previously worked at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the U.S. Department of State. He has published more than 200 professional articles, editorials, and reports on geographic information systems (GIS), continental drift, coastal change analysis, and human evolution. Jerry led the development of the current world standard for estimating populations-at-risk in disasters of all kinds and the current world standard for cartographic representation of land mines and minefields. He holds a Ph.D. in geography from the University of Tennessee. He has conducted fieldwork throughout North America, especially Alaska, Mexico, and the Adirondack Mountains of New York, plus many faraway places: South America, Liberia, East Africa, the Middle East, East Asia, and Australia. Jerry and Jeff have collaborated on research about ancient sea levels since 1993. The Waters of Chaos is an outgrowth of their real world research into the physical and cultural evidence of global sea level rise that occurred at the end of the Ice Ages. Like Jared and Rick Caisson, Jerry and Jeff are twin brothers who lived in the Knoxville, Tennessee area during the writing of The Waters of Chaos.
