Synopsis: The More opens with a dramatic fall form the towering rock face of the "Chief", rendering James Garwood unconscious. As he is evacuated from this climbing Mecca to nearby Vancouver we learn of James's unique character and those of his friends who will now carry out a week-long hike in his absence.
As five strangers begin their journey in the wild splendor of British Columbia's West Coast Trail, they discover a compelling relationship with each other, with their surroundings and with a society radically changed in their absence.
A paper left by James drives an eploration of ideas as unique as the journey they begin along the stretch of coast known to mariners as "the graveyard of the Pacific". Though it they discover how the patterns of nature inspire a new economy, how chaotic events shift spontaneously to a higher order, how a society poised for collapse transforms to a culture of caring.
As relations between the group deepen, they begin to see an emerging social order paralleing the organic patterns of nature. Insights arising from the challenges they face on the trail provoke a sequence of personal transformations.
These transformations are tested as dramatic news from the outside world is relayed by other hikers. This catastrophic change in world affairs threatens the group's understanding until they realize that it signals a unique human order is moving, as they have, to a new system of belief.
Reaching the trail's end, a twist of events leads to an unexplected conclusion which aids each member of the goup to move his or her beliefs to actions. Their commitment to life as it could be, is paralleled by the world at large - leaving little doubt we are all on a journey to The More.
