Beginnings (More)


May 27th, 2018 Posted 8:21 am

On Sundays, we’ve been doing beginnings – all the Chet and Bernies (as part of Chetspeak) – and now taking on all the Peter Abrahams novels in chronological order. Here from 2008, #20, INTO THE DARK, 3rd in the Echo Falls series for younger readers. A nice fit for Memorial Day Weekend, and because of that, instead of the beginning, here’s a little bit of Mr. Sidney, the old school bus driver, talking to Ingrid and her friend Ty.

“Very next morning they had us on the road to the prison camp. Not going to talk about the Death March – you can look it up. Not going to talk about the starvation, or the disease, the heat, or what happened to anybody who lagged behind, even to drink from a mud puddle.”

“What happened to them?” said Ty.

“What did I just say?” said Mr. Sidney.

[“I’ve read the two previous Echo Falls mysteries featuring Ingrid (Down the Rabbit Hole and Behind the Curtain) and enjoyed them, but I think this one may be the best of all.”

Pearl Harbor – Tomorrow’s Post


December 6th, 2016 Posted 7:57 am

75 years ago today. Not today the 6th, of course. That would be an error. How did it happen? Fog of war?

Among many other things, we got dragged onto the international stage. An excellent one-volume history of WW2 is INFERNO by Max Hastings.

(And the Bataan Death March figures in INTO THE DARK, third in Admin’s Echo Falls series.)
