About the Author
A link to the past no one could ever imagine.
When a great-grandson inherits two aging trunks and a stack
of meticulously detailed journals penned by his great-grandfather, he sets out
to fulfill his great-grandfather's last request: to tell the story of an
incredible life replete with adventure, violence, and tragedy. The
great-grandfather's name is Billy Battles--a man often trapped and overwhelmed
by circumstances beyond his control.
For much of his 100-year-long life Billy is a man missing
and largely unknown to his descendants. His great-grandson is about to change
that. As he works his way through the aging journals and the other possessions he
finds in the battered trunks he uncovers the truth about his mysterious
great-grandfather--a man whose deeds and misdeeds propelled him on an
extraordinary and perilous journey from the untamed American West to the
inscrutable Far East, Latin America and Europe.
But most of all he learns that in finding Billy Battles he
has also found a long lost and astonishing link to the past.
