Bonestell Valley

In a small fishing community, hidden away and forgotten by most of the world, two sisters intent upon helping their town would change the entire world they lived in.  As children they would watch their father rise early each day to pull fish from the deep waters of the lake, load up his catch onto pack animals and ascend a long and precarious trail taking him out of the valley to bring the fish to market.

With the meager funds their father earned he sent them on to advanced schooling at the Moran Retreat. There they studied science and, expanding on this knowledge they discovered the mysteries of the lifting gases, and made the first lighter-than-air craft to carry fish out of the valley to the market. Before long all towns, no matter how remote, would be linked by airship.
