Readers will find themselves engaged in an exciting search through a presidential library, in addition to university, state, national and local archives, as the author's historical research unfolds to reveal the true story about his Uncle Art. From a secret mission to the South Pacific with Admiral Byrd to being Head Curator for the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History, and from historical findings of the Battle at San Pasqual to exploration of ancient native inhabitants on the Channel Islands-Art lived a most interesting life.

Woodward Museum in Ramona, Calif., turned into a five-year research project highlighting a few of the many accomplishments of archaeologist, ethnologist, anthropologist, historian, explorer and more-Arthur Woodward.
