Klappentext

Imagine you are a witness to the Battle of Hastings in 1066, or aboard The Mayflower as it leaves England for America. Or, perhaps you are among the Minutemen at Lexington and Concord, or present at the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. Or, you are among the victors at Big Round Top, surveying the Gettysburg Battlefield, or on the beach at Iwo Jima, suddenly confronted by withering Japanese gunfire. Or, you are with an in-flight refueling aircrew over the north Atlantic during the Cold War.

These are experiences of individuals known as The Wayfarers. They are members of an extended family line, an American family, and the stories are a blend of fact and fiction. Where fragments of information are available, they are used. To that extent, the stories are biographical. But, beyond that, they are fiction. To the fragments of known information are blended figments of imagination and stories result. They are intended to be representative of all who qualify as Wayfarers. By telling of some, tribute is paid to all.

Join the Wayfarers in the journey through time. Enjoy the experiences of a family progenitor in 900 AD, a Norwegian Viking ashore in Scotland. Visit colonial New England. Experience the Indian wars of the 1600s, the turbulence of the American Revolution and the shock of Civil War battles. Sail on a whaler in the vast North Pacific in the 1850s. Travel on the transcontinental railroad just two months after its completion in 1869, by steamship to Ireland and England in 1884, by auto on the Old National Road in 1919, and to Europe again by sea in 1929.

Come, join the journey of the Wayfarers.
