Land Over Time is the sequel to the book Something In the Sky, and continues the story of sophomore Lyle Kent who comes back to Oregon to help his family survive. During his ramblings through the countryside, he discovers a strange place in the woods that only nature and history can explain. He also finds a place in his community where he tries to help others and himself. This is the story of a small town struggling with change, growth, and how everyone has a duty and a right to participate in decisions about the future.
The trilogy is a story told by a teenager about his everyday experience of trying to thrive with his odd-ball family and the strange small-town people. He is a writer who expresses himself in writing as well as with his actions. He finds many ways to see himself and others and he is tuned into the history and mythic lore of a place by others, especially his Great Grandfather.
