Seven Days From Darwin

Seven Days From Darwin by John Buckland

From fishing in the highlands of northern Mongolia and island hopping in Thailand to 4-wheeling in the Australian outback, John Buckland draws upon his extensive travel experience to weave a tale of mystery and intrigue with Seven Days from Darwin, hot off the press.

An avid, expert deep-sea SCUBA diver and knowledgeable historian, it’s from these experiences that he draws his creativity and character development.

“Traveling creates a restless kind of energy in me and writing helps me understand and express my experiences,” states Buckland.

As he tells us, Seven Days from Darwin explores several themes, including: hope and the compelling reasons to believe in it, Evolution Theory and reasons to reflect on its validity, The Great Depression, along with greed, lust and “survival of the fittest.”  Sounds pretty good to us. The story is a work of fiction, but is based on a multiplicity of real life travel adventures.  Set in the 1930’s Dutch East Indies, Buckland captures a time before the arrival of rampant development and the advent of the “exclusive resort”.

A time well worth jumping into.
