"A Modern Wilderness" An easy-read that is nicely illustrated, the book is about an early model violin named "The Messiah", and it's epoch journey across Europe to England, and the New World. Across the ocean, the stories of those blessed by the fiddles spirit are interwoven with the frontiersmen migrating to new vast territories. The circuit of believers were called the Presbyters, who were to go forth, and subdue the land. It was a vast wilderness of untamed beauty, lawless villains, and innocent young children. What on Earth happened as the years went by, and we found ourselves in "A Modern Wilderness." The series of short stories, that can be easily followed with the true-to-life circumstances, real-to-life people, and exciting presentations intertwine into a woven fabric of decent world views. It is a picture of a rural American society. No offensive language is used in this book. The contents of the stories were carefully selected, and edited by the author to be a family, and kid friendly collection. The pages pass very quickly, as each story unfolds into a developing place, and time.The truth behind each story is a testimony, going beyond the facade of the outer character, into where the inner portrait of life is told. The lure of the fiddle, and the charm of the tales are intruiging. The times were different, then. Many generations had passed. But many of the places, and ways of life were just as real then, as they are today. For more information visit: Station NT5B is licensed by the FCC.
