The Years at Nura
About the Book
Is there life in outer space? In Book 1, The Journey To Nura, we see Jim and his new friends as they face that question. They agree to leave this world and go to Nura to help save a dying race. They travel in a space ship to Nura, facing new challenges as they go.
In Book 2, The Years At Nura, they discover a very advanced world, that nearly died out over a small problem. As they help save this new world they learn about the Space Program and many of them become interested in entering that program when the Special Project is over for them. They return for a visit to Earth after 17 years to find tragedies and sorrow.
At the end of 34 years in the Special Project they enter the Space Program and prepare to travel in space. Those years of space travel will take place in Book 3, The Space Travelers From Nura, which should be released shortly.
