May 1963, Chad Allison sits in history class writing an essay on Genghis Khan. Suddenly he is transported to a vast tundra. He is sitting on a small pony, dressed in khaki pants, penny loafers, and a golf shirt. Genghis himself is staring at him as he sits astride his great horse. Chad smells the grass of the tundra, the sweat of the Mongol tribesmen, and he tastes the dust of the tundra sweeping before him. This is Chad's first FLASH. He will have many more.
Maria Oligano is the new Italian girl that lives down the street and who has a crush on Chad. She too is a Traveler who can paint pictures and is then able to enter into those pictures. Her father has brought the family to America to get away from the village in Italy that branded her as a evil girl with strange powers.
This is their story as they travel together and apart from the past and the present. They will seek a father who has long been missing. They will flee from people who are trying to use them and kill them. They will see life at its best and its worst.
