I hope you enjoy this excerpt from Chapter Three of Book IV, "Stone Warriors."

He told CJ the story of that day in early March when six brave explorers from Corbett walked up the Columbia River Gorge to meet the people living by Bonneville Dam. It was during the fourth winter after civilization fell apart. The cliffs lining the mighty river were topped with the white remnants of the recent fierce early February snowstorm. It was a rare sunny day, yet the air was cool, not quite freezing, with a typical yet annoying sharp wind whipping down the river from the east.

The brilliant late morning sun was now tucked away, barely hidden behind the bluffs to their right, trying unsuccessfully to shine on the damp, mossy lanes of the shaded freeway, which traced the south side of the riverbank. Near the shore, a hungry sea lion feasted on a sturgeon, attracting a flock of sea gulls to scavenge the remains.

The area just above my kneecap started hurting out of the blue and as a result I can no longer run, bike, walk properly, or move up or down stairs without moving very slowly. So I decided to limp and assumed the pain would just go away quickly healing itself as nearly all injuries will. After all, it only hurts when I move it.
