McBeth Johnson went alone, into unexplored territory, to look for a place called Karawala and do a little fishing. He was told he could find something more precious than gold, and he did. In a little village far from the nearest road, he found himself, and he found humanity. Most of it was beauty and wonder beyond imagination, but he was being followed. The allure became tarnished and lost outright. He was captured, tried and sentenced to death. He escaped in a stolen plane, but not without his treasure.
