An American Sporting Man Goes To Hell
[Short Story] A true tale of gloriously misguided sporting expectations, instantly withered to so much overcooked gnocchi when steeped in a small town Italian soup. (If you surf, you'll find that this little story has 5-star ratings!)
[Short Story] A larger-than-brains tale of rugged high adventure that lionizes two swashbuckling young explorers--tougher than biker gangers, more clever than sixty two percent of marsupials--as they straddle the unlikeliest of manly machines through the dry and deadly Australian Red Centre. A tale of men whose keen wits miss naught...and with glory.
The shame of terrible deeds past can drive a man to self contempt. Even a priest. Even one who has been saving the world...from himself.
A gripping saga of mystery and courage--of beauty, greed, doubt, honor...and heroism.
