The author published his first book in 1979, In Search of Paradise, now in the fourth edition. After retiring from teaching, he decided that he wanted to continue helping young people read more and understand better what they were reading. He realized that interest and the feeling of association gave more support to reading better than anything else. During his many years of teaching, he found that the student who read well made the best grades and profited the most from the educational system. His goal is to offer easy reading material which is interesting and challenging and makes the use of the reader's own imagination and problem solving skills. This book is part of a third series and much of the written material is relevant to the two book series that have already been written and with six in the market place as of this writing. There are five books in each of the two series and it is expected that the books will be read in the order that is intended.

He developed a closeness with those who once lived there and has felt that association ever since.
