A few hundred years ago, Cascadia Island didn´t even exist. Like the Washington seacoast, it was rock submerged beneath the Pacific. A massive earthquake changed that, exploding the rock upward, making it land - unstable land, according to seismologist Dr. Doug Lam.Lam has spent years researching the Cascadia Subduction Zone. He published a theory that the unrelieved tectonic strain beneath the idyllic landscape of Cascadia Island could be triggered with modern construction processes - with catastrophic results. The paper was disregarded, even ridiculed, by his peers and by mega wealthy developer Mick Walker, who stands to earn millions from the construction of a luxury resort on Cascadia. The elegant casino, hotel, and convention center will reap millions for him even if the tiny island only lasts for a short time...When a series of earthquakes begins to shake the Northwest Corridor, Doug´s worst fears are confirmed. In an attempt to convince Walker to evacuate Cascadia immediately, Doug hurries to join guests arriving for the resort´s grand opening. As the tremors wreak havoc across the Northwest coastal area, the military is left with too few resources to assist the people on Cascadia. Convinced that the island will be in ruins within hours, Doug reluctantly calls upon his girlfriend, Jennifer Lindstrom, president of Nightingale Aviation - a major medical transport helicopter company - for help.With snow falling, visibility dropping, and winds increasing, Doug embarks on an impossible mission with Jennifer and Nightingale´s helicopters to evacuate over 300 people, while smaller earthquakes continue to herald the approach of a catastrophic tsunami.John J. Nance hurtles readers along a nail-biting quest to rescue hundreds of stranded vacationers and resort staff. Meticulously researched, and with the signature authenticity only a veteran pilot could provide, Saving Cascadia is a hair-raising thriller of awesome magnitude. 1. Language: English.

Cascadia Prime is an apocalyptic story of three men who are sent to the far reaches of space to make friends and help save the people of Earth. Viggo, who is possibly a relative of Bigfoot, is selected to go on this mission. Hanini, an Hawaiian Kahuna is also chosen, as is General East - the quintessential military leader. These three very different men have to learn how to get along, escape one group of natives on a distant planet, and make friends with another group. Their goal is to get the friendly natives to build spaceships, send them to Earth, and bring the people of Earth to this distant planet to settle. Will they be successful? What surprises will they encounter along the way? What does each of these three men have to offer to ensure the success of this mission? Cascadia Prime - in memory of the US Pacific Northwest - affectionately known as Cascadia. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Craig Long.

Gordon Van Zandt is a man accustomed to adversity and hardship, but now he is left with dwindling options. With his fledgling republic teetering on the verge of collapse, he must find a way to seize an unlikely victory from what appears to be certain defeat. President Cruz is no stranger to the position he holds, having served in Conner´s absence before. However, this time the job is proving to be difficult and downright impossible. The remnants of the United States are being held together by a patchwork of governors and bureaucrats, some using his weakness as a means to enrich themselves. With the war against Cascadia at a standstill, he must make a decision to either negotiate peace or continue the war that has done nothing but damage each side and left his military scattered and weakened. Both men are in precarious positions and riding the razor´s edge towards an uncertain future. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joseph Morton.
