Summary
"On a cold night in a remote cabin, an uneventful, impromptu goodbye party for Professor John Oldman becomes something extraordinary when he makes a prodigious announcement: he is an immortal who has migrated through 140 centuries of evolution and now must move on. Is Oldman truly Cro-Magnon or simply insane? Now one man will force five scholars to confront their own notions of history, religion, science and humanity, all [l]eading to a final revelation that may shatter their world forever"--Container
