Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: With the appearance of his latest novel, ""Lost Kingdoms"", Phillip H. McMath has completed his fictional trilogy beginning with ""Native Ground"" (1984), then ""Arrival Point"" (1991). Now in ""Lost Kingdoms"", the fictional Elizabeth Shaw flashes back via grief and remembrance on the death of her son, Christopher, the Marine hero of Native Ground killed in Vietnam. Through this medium of memory and loss is woven in the lives of several families (White, Black, and Red) the tragic story of Arkansas, the South, Southwest, and Mexico, which slowly emerges as a philosophical-historical tapestry not only as a tale uniquely its own but a comment on the meaning of history itself.
