The Terrability is an environmental thriller set in the late 20th century, in which a group of talented, lateral-thinking people from around the world collaborate to establish an experimental design base to combat ecological disaster. Despite a few hiccups, the base comes to fruition in a secret remote location in Central Australia and results in a modern day paradise. The focus of the base is to demonstrate how society could live in harmony with the earth's ecology - and with each other - via the practical application of progressive techniques in the fields of habitation, cultivation, recreation, communication, and energy. However, transmitting the results of this successful experiment to the outside world becomes fraught with danger to its inhabitants, which include a legendary super race of indigenous Australians. A native of Adelaide, Australia, Rin Petweed is now retired. His first novel shows his concern with where the world is heading environmentally, as well as to point out society's inability to collaborate in order to create a better world.
