Once when Earth was young there was a book of time that made time tick. The book of time was located in the forgotten hills,it was a long way from anywhere (A side from the forgotten hills).
One day a bunch of explorers got together to find the forgotten hills but they had no idea that the book of time was there. So they went and explored for a year and found the forgotten hills. But they were not prepared and staved to death, just as they saw it in the distance.
