Thirteen years earlier, “Tommy” Ingles was kidnapped in a raid by Shawnee Indians when he was only four. The scout had purchased the young man from his Shawnee family and was bringing him back in restraints when Thomas escaped. Neither the settlers nor the Shawnees could imagine that the escape was aided by the consciousness of Heath Ingles, a distant relation from the 21st century, time slipping back to the boy, unwittingly, to assume the role of guardian spirit and ease the transition of this savage ancestor back into white, colonial society. Based on the life of colonial American, Thomas Ingles, Worlds Apart is the story of a frontiersman's incredible exploits, narrated by a modern day college student who is repeatedly summoned back to witness and influence turning points in the life of his host. Fiddle lessons with a young Tom Jefferson lead to an impromptu jam with the future president and his friend, Patrick Henry, at Jefferson's wedding reception leaving all attendees astonished at Thomas' virtuosity. Ingles and his young wife experience heartbreaking loss when an Indian raid on their isolated homestead results in the death of two of their three young children. From a disastrous attempt to shoot the rapids at Muscle Shoals with two greenhorns to a brutal bar fight in Natchez, Thomas Ingles blazes a trail across the southeastern territories as they are being settled. Heath Ingles, his Opawawka from the future, has his own battles to face. Participating in Thomas' struggle for survival between two warring cultures teaches Heath invaluable lessons that help him win back the girl he loves, come to terms with a disapproving father, and make some sense of his own existence. It also forces him to ask the question: Is technology a poor substitute for a life well lived?
