Timecachers Novels

Glenn (dinobalz) has written 2 books about American History.  The great thing about them is they use a form of Geocaching to “Discover” the details of history. They use a high-tech GPS to locate history beacons (see below).  Both novels are great to read and have just enough drama to keep you interested, while enlightening you to US history.   You don’t need to read them in order, you can read Pursuit of Liberty first if you want.

From Amazon:
Timecachers is a high-tech adventure story that transports present-day characters to the Cherokee Indian Removal of 1838.  Although the story should appeal to everyone, it will be especially interesting to a younger, technical audience.  It will also appeal to those who wish to learn more about Cherokee culture.

Pursuit of Liberty Follow the Timecachers on a chase through colonial Boston! For the last year, the Timecachers have been fulltime field test engineers of the LANav, a revolutionary navigational device capable of navigating through both space and time. When a malevolent engineer from a rival company steals one of the devices and accidentally transports himself to 1770, Adam, Sal, Alice, and Tom must follow him through a series of time beacons, taking them on a chase through the tumultuous and rebellious days of colonial Boston.

Link to books at Amazon: Timecachers

They are both available in paperback, and for Kindle, and Kindle Apps for PC and other “smart” devices (Phones etc.)
