Children of the Extinction
CHILDREN OF THE EXTINCTION
-A controversial story about Kauai in the future. A future gone bad-
Kalaheo, Kauai, Hi. August 1, 2014—This is a mind-gripping narrative about-for-courageous, concerned, and independent women in a struggle for human existence. Children are the future. How they are to be raised in the new Dark Age is the force that drives this epic.
Hawaii has been hit by a triple whammy: pandemic, tsunami, hurricane. Oahu is a lost cause. No power, no transportation, no communication, no food or water. People are dying in droves of hunger, disease, violent mob behavior.
The military brass, therefor, decide to move the center of command to Kauai, which, in their estimation, still has a chance of survival. They secretly depart in a troop transport carrying six hundred men-their wives and children-and a brigade of Stryker tanks.
Narrated by Reilley Hawkins-former journalist- wife of the Second in command- has been devastated by the death of her only son. She tells the story of an attempt to save the children of Kauai from the clutches of a small but powerful religious faction in the military. They see the local children- tattered, lost, homeless orphans- as a future menial labor force.
There exists, however, a secret civilian/military element who envision another future for the children. Who will win this struggle? This story is so compelling you won’t be able to put it down. You’ll feel as if you’ve known these people all your lives, and meet a search and rescue dog who will quickly find a special place in your heart.
Bettejo Dux, a resident of Kauai for over forty years, is an award winning writer, columnist, novelist, peace and environmental activist who knows, and lovesKauai with a passion that shows up in her work.
