An old man is found wandering in the Arizona desert, apparently demented, talking in rhymes. In his pocket is a diagram of a 14th century monastery in France that is being excavated by a team of archaeologists from Yale University. The head of the team disappears suddenly and three of the team members decide they will track him down. They are Kate Erickson, athletic, passionate about mediaeval architecture and rock climbing; dreamy Chris Hughes; and Andre Marek, obsessed with the mediaeval world. Altogether they possess great knowledge of the fourteenth century - or so they thought, until they find themselves in a world, which teaches them how little they really know.

Sobering cautionary story.

A history lesson and a short course in quantum physics all wrapped up in a gripping, accessible story! An absolute favorite. The movie does not do the book justice.

Fun, very plot-driven, reasonably well thought through. Science fiction for non-science-fiction readers.

Not the best one of his works, but it was mostly enjoyable. Got carried away at times with history explanation, but overall it held my attention and had a fun ending.
