START WITH AN OVERVIEW



Did you read the pop-up over my image on the home page? It introduces me and sets the scene for you to start a trip into recent history and to experience how easy accidental learning can be. My itinerary may change, but I know my travels will at least include these items:

  •     

On a train across Newfoundland, I figure out who has planned a robbery.

  •   

On a ferry to Nova Scotia, I discover a plot to kill the ship’s captain.

  •   

In Maine, I get mixed up with some smugglers of contraband.

  •   

In New York, gangsters trick my father into a crooked card game.

  •   

In Atlanta, I reinvestigate a crime blamed on an innocent young man.

  •   

In Detroit, I am kidnapped by a gangster who also shoots at my father.

  •   

In Estonia, I deliver an artificial heart device but get thrown into a KGB jail.

  •   

In London, I witness consequences of a second attempt on my father’s life.

  •   

In Germany, I face the truth of Nazism, the Reformation, and ancient artifacts.

  •   

In Greece and France, I poke my nose into political and religious rebellion.

  •   

Flying over the Atlantic, my plane gets hijacked; and I fear landing in Cuba.

  •   

In Louisiana and Texas, I rejoin known characters who have told big lies.

  •   

In Nevada, I learn the secret of the Lost Sheepherders Gold Mine.

  •   

In Washington, I encounter an environmental dilemma and a haunted house.

  •   

In Hawaii, Sammy and I meet and rest: he, from the war; I, from a shipwreck.

  •   

In India, I receive the worst and best news of my life.
