LO's John Teton has a new book out

SUBMITTED PHOTO - John Tetons Elevation: The Cave Logs of New Hale, Tibet is available now.

Lake Oswego writer and filmmaker John Teton has released a new novel, “Elevation: The Cave Logs of New Hale, Tibet.”

The description of the book sets the stage from a cave high in the Himalayas, where Tibetan-American search and rescue ace Terma Den Sherab, and Roma-American artist and cinematographer Calieze Moss, make an extraordinary discovery.

Together they can boost the weakened immunity to a virus that catalyzes evil in the souls of potential killers thousands of miles away.

In the book, Den and Calieze recount their harrowing and exhilarating discoveries as they become caught up in life or death struggles both far away and too close to home.

The story is rooted in Tibet with tendrils reaching across India, the Colorado Rockies, Central American jungles, and the streets of New York, San Francisco and other spots around the globe.

Den and Calieze’s saga mingles sensual romance with experimental science and Asian and Western spirituality, reshaping innumerable lives including their own, and the arcs of contemporary world history and perhaps evolution itself.

The book “Elevation: The Cave Logs of New Hale, Tibet” is available in hardcover, paperback and e-book and can be ordered from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and bookstores everywhere.
