In 1916 Arthur Conan Doyle made a declaration that would impact the rest of his life. He stated his belief in Spiritualism. Could it be? Did the man who created the ever-logical Sherlock Holmes believe in ghosts? During October of 1917 Conan Doyle gave his first public lecture on Spiritualism. He wanted to present the facts, as he knew them, for the benefit of mankind. Even though he knew his reputation and career would suffer he became an outspoken proponent for the movement. He wrote books, articles and made countless public appearances to promote his beliefs. His easy-going manner and absolute faith in the movement made him an effective speaker. He was so sincere that even opponents of Spiritualism considered him to be well-intentioned. Our American Adventure is an account of a trip made by Arthur Conan Doyle to the U.S. in 1922. In the book Doyle recounts his and his speaking tours discussing spiritualism in New York, Boston, Washington, Philadelphia, New Haven (Yale), Buffalo, Toronto, Detroit, Toledo and Chicago.
