Expedition to Earth by Tim the Idahoan follows the journey of a man named Peter Graves who lives on our moon. He and a whole colony of humans have been there for more than 200 years. They have not had any contact with anyone on Earth since the planet was devastated by a nuclear war. Peter is selected to go with a space expedition back to Earth to see if any humans are still alive. Once there, their space ship gets into trouble immediately and Peter and several others are stranded on the planet with no way to get back home. Peter volunteers to look for help but doesn’t get far before he meets up with some of the remnants of humanity. From that point on, the reader follows Peter on an incredible journey through a world that seems to have slipped back in time several hundred years.

This is technically a science fiction adventure story but, in the long run, it felt more like a time travel book where the hero from a futuristic society goes back in time and gets stuck in the past where modern technology doesn’t yet exist. Expedition to Earth excels in the fascinating story department. Tim the Idahoan has quite a vivid imagination and has assembled a truly amazing plot that seamlessly flows from one amazing adventure for Peter to another. He also seems to really know his science. This book is chock full of scientific formulas, equations, and problem-solving. The story is creative and exciting, providing a smart, likable main character who ends up in many remarkable adventures. Fans of hard science fiction and fans of time traveler adventure tales will get a kick out of Expedition to Earth.
