Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: THE FUN OF FANTASY...THE ASSURANCE OF FACT... What does it take to reach the life summit you choose for yourself ? For Thomas Jefferson it was… and it is the same for me today... 1. Persistence 2. Persistence 3. Persistence! Here’s a “frolicking” way both to recall and learn new facts about American history that will warm your heart instead of provoking a snore! A book for all age groups, "Come Ride the Rails with Smoke- stack Jack," is about awesome years in America from the Revolution forward. As this author has concluded, imagination in the case of Apple’s Steve Jobs carried him through a fascinating life of creativity. It was en- hanced by truths borne out in American history. Read here the story of a youth suffering concussion after a bicycle accident and fantasizing in a coma about so many marvels he’d learned in his early years of life. Your imagination will be rewarded by seeing how virtual spirituality can be life-changing when you prep your mind to receive nuggets from history. Be not concerned whether your fantasy can become a lubri- cant to a rich life based on eternal truths. It will be. The youth’s mentor during his concussion is his alter ego, Smoke- stack Jack, a puppet who has lived forever in spiritual form. And would your imagination allow you to talk face to face in the spirit with George Washing- ton on a train owned by puppet Smokestack Jack? A woman dying of cancer in her late 70s “could not lay the manu- script aside.” A NASA engineer was so fascinated by his copy, he said “that’s an extraordinary story.” An ad executive who volunteered to read proof be- fore the publisher’s editor saw it, liked reading for the first time—or in part as a review—the lives of men and women like Washington, Franklin, Lin- coln, Madam Curie, Clara Booth Luce and Helen Keller. Join these folks in a read you’ll treasure from now on.
