About the Author
From a traveled elementary school education, changing schools ever two years, to attending a small liberal arts college, James Strauss graduated to a leadership position that turned out to be a ‘hanging by the fingernails’ survival position in the Marines Corps in the Vietnam War, 1969. From a hospital bed, when he finally found it was likely he would live, and looked up and asked God for one favor. James asked not to lead a normal humdrum life. He now believes that God heard his prayer and pointed one finger down to grant his request. Outrageous fortune was smiled down upon him with all of its travel, pain, depression, elation, danger, adventure and total lack of believability. For a time James tried to have credibility until he discovered that his own credibility was "without meaning". James has published four novels: The Boy, The Bering Sea, The Warrior, and Down in the Valley. He is currently readying another Arch Patton Saga, It Was 1993, and an accounting of his Vietnam War Experience, 30 Days Has September, along with publishing a weekly Midwestern Newspaper, The Geneva Shore Report

boring books of this genre. It was a privilege to live life in the author's shoes for 245 pages, although it ended too soon. He wrote about Hawaii as no tourist would ever see it, descriptions of scenic beauty, and tiny places on
the map like Rabbit Island. His characters seemed real, very real. Arch Patton was the most interesting. I have a feeling that the author is just as intelligent, savvy, and world-wise as Arch or how else could he write about him?
If you temporarily want to escape your mundane world, have a great adventure, and safely re-enter your own reality
again, this book is for you.
