||"Every person needs one place in this world that is theirs and theirs alone." Indie rocker Dakota Hoss and his hipster girlfriend Emily are being hunted by a drug dealer whom they inadvertently ripped off. At an utter loss for where to get the money, a chance find at a local Goodwill spells salvation for them. From the ramparts of an old computer tower, an undeleted Word document erupts before them revealing the memoir of an affluent entrepreneur turned ascetic recluse who lived five years ala Thoreau in the untouched wilderness of Northern California. Teamed up with an auspicious three friend bouquet, Dakota and Emily set off into the woods retracing the steps of the recluse en route to his buried fortune. With them, travel 27 year-old obituary columnist and erudite, Nathan Irving (also the narrator). The gay and sentient actor, Jade Newberg. And pretty-boy simpleton, Tony Torgeson. All of which have their private reasons for wanting a cut of the money. However, none are prepared for the Rubicon they are about to cross. Book I of 'Cassadaga' will take you deep into the untouched wilds of Northern California thus beginning the three book epic saga of three friends who will fight tooth and nail for understanding, forgiveness and their lives in a world gone to the devil. The only hope after their bloody tirade is to get to Cassadaga and seance with the dead. Their mortal lives depend on it.
