on the Spirit, Celebrating Eccentric Mentors
has always had an eye out for exceptional characters. "In the present
moment," he says, "when the center cannot hold, we need to look
to the fringes - to rebels, curmudgeons, saints and eccentrics - for wisdom
and inspiration." In Passing on the Spirit, Bill recounts

Winston Churchill's Bodyguard, The Teheran Conference 1943 by Danny Mander

Composer Gary Thomas has created 4 musical arrangements to set the mood for certain sections of the story. Videographer Kym Hoffschildt, Audio Engineer Gopher Gold, Photojournalist A.

Danny Mander recounts the events of World War II as he experienced them; The Battle of Britain, life on the Western Desert and The Teheran Conference. As Winston Churchill's Bodyguard, he had direct access to Winston Churchill and as part of his duties lifted Franklin D. Roosevelt from his limosine and into his wheelchair. He saved the life of General Voroshilov, the hero of the Battle of Stalingrad Russia and he helps unravel the mystery of the dropped sword presented to Josef Stalin by Winston Churchill.
Seafaring, by Frank Adamson

Iowa is far from either of the great oceans that wash the Eastern and Western shores of the Americas. Neither the sounds nor the scents of the sea drift so far inland. Only written words and pictures in books were available to fuel the dreams of Frank Adamson, the young Quaker farm boy whose yearning to see the ocean prompted him to seek a summer of seafaring following his freshman year in college which began in September 1939 just after France and England had declared war on Germany when Hitler ignored their ultimatum to cease and desist.
It was June of 1940 when Frank Adamson left Iowa for New York. Although Hitler's armies were sweeping through France in hot pursuit of French and British forces seeking evacuation from the French beaches of Dunkirk, what was happening in Europe was only vaguely known in the American hinterland.
That it could radically affect the summer job plans of a 19 year old college student was unsuspected. That a summer of seafaring would extend for 6 years and two full circumnavigations of the globe was far beyond his wildest imagination, as were the critical events of World War II that he witnessed and was a part of, that shaped the direction of his life thereafter.
