“Snapshots” is a saga that traverses nearly three decades, and takes the reader with the author as he visits five continents. These are tales that include China in the years following the death of Mao Tse Tung, bareboating a forty-six foot sailboat on the Great Lakes, a safari on the plains of Kenya, and snorkeling over Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. One journal includes the story of what the author describes as “the most interesting day of my life,” when he and his companions made “The Kurobe Trek,” through the Japanese Alps, and across the great Kurobe Dam.
Yes, “Snapshots” does include a few actual photographic snapshots. Not too many. Just enough to help the reader visualize some of the people and places that populate the book. This is a book that will appeal to readers across a wide spectrum of interests and backgrounds, and for many years to come.
