of Conquistador Pedro de Mérida:

I wish to acknowledge those who have helped make this site possible.

Eric Weber (website | [email protected]) designed and developed this site. He is a man of great technical abilities as well as a sense of humor and a strong moral compass. It is my good fortune to know him and have him maintain the site.

Alex Currie, my grandson, gave me the idea to provide Google Earth tours for both Clawing for the Stars and The Adventure Chronicles. I believe they add an important visual aspect that allows the reader to experience the scenery of the ground traveled by me in Clawing and by the characters of the Chronicle in their journeys through South America.
