Colorado Drift: The Case Of Why Walk When We Can Fly – by D. A. Kori Prier

First Book In The Klabowski Chronicles

Colorado Drift takes the reader on a snowy, modernistic science fiction adventure inside a Rocky Mountain avalanche.

DA Kori Prier changes things up for the reader in Colorado Drift. In a rare look from a fourth-wall perspective, Dr. Simon Kablowski shares the story of his friend and her escapade.

Ebbie McSwain and her daughter are on a routine business trip to meet Ebbie’s husband in Breckenridge for the trade show launch of their newest skis. Fluttering white snow falls as Ebbie and Shanna navigate through the high mountains.

When the weather worsens from windy snow flurries into a full-blown blizzard, a tragic roadway collision occurs inside a tunnel just ahead of them. This forces all the mountain traffic to go up and over a high elevation pass, creating a string of unfortunate events for several of the other travelers. Ebbie does her best to stay calm for her daughter’s sake and tries to keep their vehicle safely on the road.

Snow and ice continue to build up all around them. The slippery pass conditions worsen, and then Ebbie and her daughter are lost in an avalanche of thick, dense snow. Buried under several feet of hard pack, Ebbie worries about herself and her daughter’s fate.

As the death toll rises on the mountain, Ebbie creates several unique ways to save them from their winter prison.

Will her quick thinking be enough to help them make it out alive?


“This is a harrowing story of the violence and fickleness of avalanches in the Colorado high country. Intertwined within it is the lives of several victims, and the resourcefulness of one that leads to the rescue of three trapped individuals. It’s an exciting read filled with an amazing depth of knowledge.”

By Charles DuPuy, Author of the E.Z. Kelly Series


“The descriptions in Colorado Drift are vivid. The characters, especially their personalities, are clear, making them likeable and real. There are no plastic stereotypes here, just normal everyday folk.”

By Don Herrmann, MSG, US Army Retired


“I was initially charmed by the familiar locales that frame Colorado Drift and that familiarity made it all the easier to feel buried myself, right along with Ebbie, as the lovely mountains turn frighteningly treacherous.”

By Rick Roberts, Platinum Singer/Songwriter of “Colorado” and Author of Lame Brain: My Journey Back To Real Life
