9780061052071: Ancient Shores

A farmer digs up the remains of a sailing vessel in a field. There has been no water there since the Ice Age and the sail is of a fabric unknown to human science. Excavations reveal some strange architecture and a sort of "stargate". The only way to find out where it goes is for someone to try it.

Review:

"An old-fashioned page turner...filled with breathless plotting...[and] a nail-biting ending."--"New York Daily News

From the Back Cover:

SCIENCE FICTION ON A GRAND SCALE

Tom Lasker is about to have his life turned upside down. In the midst of his wheat fields two thousand miles from any ocean, he digs up the remains of a forty-two foot sailboat in near perfect condition. It's true the wheat fields had once been on the shoreline of a great inland sea, but that was ten thousand years ago, during the last Ice Age. Stranger still, the vessel is made form alien materials and bears on impossible atomic code.

When a subsequent discovery is made, a structure called the 'Roundhouse', the region becomes the focus of dangerous political conflict and self-seeking ambition, for the Roundhouse is revealed to be the doorway to another world…

"Jack McDevitt is one of the best hard SF writers in the business"
KEVIN J. ANDERSON, author of X-FILES: 'Ground Zero'

"Jack McDevitt writes with wisdom, compassion and an abiding sense of wonder"
