Bill Barnes knows his stuff! His portrayal of regression therapy and its uses in psychiatry are absolutely spot on! This is a great book for those interested in Atlantis, psychology, or science fiction!

Andrew W. Parker, January 7, 2021
Take it from me. This is on helluva good book. It's a page turner! I sat down with the intention of reading a few pages and ended up reading the whole thing in one sitting. It's that good!

What an imagination Barnes has! He explains the working of the Atlantis device in great and plausible detail. How did he come up with this?

Running Brook covers

The Legend of Running Brook

An unseen Watcher lives in the land of the Kepke.  He resides in the inner forest -- the Forest of Thought and Creation.  He was sent by the Great Everywhere Father to observe and judge the Kepke people.  Every Kepke man is warned not to venture too far away from the outer forest, for he might come upon the Watcher and die a terrible fearful death.   Yet someday there will be a Kepke man who will possess great medicine.  He will venture into the inner forest.  The Watcher will seek him out and the lives of the Kepke will be changed forever.  But the legends never say exactly HOW this will happen, or what the change will be. To find the answer, Running Brook must leave the land of the Kepke on a quest that will take him into the mystical Forest and deep within himself.

I received this note by snail mail from my friend, J Randall Ismay in Safford, Arizona:

Bill, if I could get on the internet, I'd give your book five stars! I found it a delight, start to finish. I recognized some Lakota practices in the text so I loaned it to my friend, a Lakota elder. He is a medicine man, but he does not claim it, and he read the book. He too was very pleased with it and liked everything but the shape shifting trees which he indicated would not be in keeping with his peoples traditions. Otherwise he was delighted and hopes you will write another. He loaned the book to one of his young Lakota charges who also enjoyed the book and also recognized a number of his tribal ways.
