The themes of the Masonic quest and adventure provide common ground for this collection. They are excursions into the calling, the instruction and the joy of Freemasonry and have been gathered from the author's life time experience as an active member to the Craft. Each selection is intended as a testimonial to the power and goodness of Freemasonry. Each attempts to hold the Masonic experience up like a gem and to turn it ever so slightly so that a facet sends forth its flashing color. Taken together there is a philosophical position expressed in this collection which, it is most earnestly hoped, will find resonance in the expanding experience of young Masons in a new generation.
