After an accident with their time-travel vessel, Eli Sands and his friends Clyne and Thea are thrown into nineteenth-century America. Clyne is stranded alone in hostile territory, Thea is mistaken for an escaped slave and taken into custody, and Eli joins the famed Lewis and Clark expedition in the hopes of saving them both. Will their stumble into 1804 change the course of history?
After another close call, Eli Sands is back in San Francisco in 2020. Unfortunately, he and his friends Clyne and Thea are being held captive by the government agency DARPA. When Thea starts to exhibit symptoms of the deadly slow pox virus, Eli agrees to travel to the war-torn ruins of ancient Jerusalem, where a cure might exist. Will Danger Boy and his friends find their way home again?
12-year-old time-traveler Eli Sands has seen much of world history.

This time Eli may have found his mom, but can he bring her home and save the free world from tyrannical rule? With the help of old friends Clyne and Thea, it may just be possible!
In 2019 Eli Sands is a typical kid, spending most of his free time with his vidpad. So what's he doing in the middle of a burning city in ancient Egypt? Standing next to a highly evolved dinosaur from another planet? It all has to do with DARPA and the timesphere experiments.
Eli's mother has disappeared. Now he must save his world and family from a fatal disease that has slipped through time.
