ESCAPE is an adventure/wilderness survival/suspense novel. The action involves a prison escape on a wilderness river in Northern Wisconsin and the subsequent chase and capture of the inmate by the prison superintendent during an unprecedented Alberta Clipper snowstorm. Since the inmate is Native American Indian, and the superintendent’s children are of Chippewa heritage, there is a strong element of Native American Indian history in the book.

On another level it is the universal story of a man who has to be invulnerable to do his job and succumbs to excessive pride and the need to control. It is a story of fate, drawn from Indian myth and Greek drama.
