About Gregory Yowell

The author has been a stockbroker for Merrill Lynch, the assistant to the commissioner of the Bureau of Public Debt, headed up the financial supervision of a $125 billion banking system and most recently the author of the novel "Second Chance".

I love: writing, studying Native American values and cultural practices, exploring humanities glorious diversity of cultures and beliefs, environmental and social activism, compassion, meticulously researching thought provoking issues, celebrating individual liberty, and the elevation of spiritual thinking.

I have taken college level courses at Western State College, the University of Colorado, the University of Michigan, the University of Chicago, the University of North Carolina, and have an graduate degree in bank auditing.

From a religious perspective I think humans need to look with awe on what God has provided and understand that the primary responsibility of our species is to protect what God has created.

Politically I think that governments should protect individual liberties, promote peaceful coexistence, take care of those in need, promote respect,include a separation of powers, contain checks and balances, be accountable to those they represent, and make decisions that acknowledge and meet the needs of future generations.

When not writing I enjoy kayaking, fishing, golf, bridge, snorkeling, reading a good book, and traveling.

Great Book!
I found this novel to be very informative and quite intriguing. The historical perspective provided opens ones eyes to the real plight and suffering of the American Indian. Few people realize how heavily populated the Western Hemisphere was during the 17th century. The depopulation of the native societies is without question the greatest massacre in recorded history.

Five Stars for this thought provoking and ambitiously conceived journey by Gregory Yowell that begins in the year 2150 where the world is plagued with multiple catastrophic environmental conditions as well as terrorism. The story is how a team of dedicated individuals, each with a particular skill-set, may be mankind's last chance to not only undo the harm that has been done to the environment but to find a way mankind can again exist in harmony with his natural environment. This is a fun read that is chocked full of interesting information on such diverse subjects as Native American life before and shortly after arrival of the Europeans, the comparisons and similarities of Christian and Native American religions, time travel, biospheres and nanotechnologies just to name a few. There is another chapter to this story that begs to be written. In summary, fasten your seat belt and prepare yourself for a high speed fabulous trip into the future as well as the past.
