The inspiration comes from my need to share what I have learned. My original intent was to write a research paper on why the Anasazi vanished. But there had to be more to the story than mere theory and facts. Such a major historical event could not have occurred without a myriad of emotions, confusion, discussions, disagreements, and unrest. Fiction became the best way to weave such emotions and interactions into the theory.
