Desc: Science Fiction Story: What were human beings like thousands of years before the dawn of civilization? Lawyer Linda Powell, herself suffering through a deep personal crisis, begins to learn for herself when a man of that era is involuntarily catapulted forward in time by happenstance to appear as if by magic in her front yard. With her help he hesitantly begins to adapt to the vast changes that have occurred since his prior life as a spearhunter. But can such a man find a true place in the modern world?

Temporal vortex: An anomaly in the space-time fabric. Very rare; occurs infrequently, of virtually instantaneous duration and generally very small so that no more than molecules may pass from one temporal context to another. Theoretically may be much larger and longer-lasting, but none such have ever been documented with certainty, although various mysterious disappearances (ref. Judge Joseph Crater, et al.) have sometimes been ascribed to them by occultists.
