In the early 90 s, a business trip took Martin Wach to Suriname, South America and his life was forever changed. The purpose of trip was to introduce sustainable micro-business as a solution to creating new trade relationships. His projects included the search for new medicines, aviculture, butterfly farming, poison dart frog research, eco-tourism to name several.
He was introduced to the Maroon Medicine Man and lived with the Maroon Indians off and on for six years. The Indians were marooned in Suriname over 300 years ago by their Dutch masters. Since the day they landed, the Maroons have fought for their freedom and have been one of the protectors of our rain forests. It is only because the Maroons have been so feared that the Rain Forest still remains. The stories told by Martin Wach of their battles and bravery, their culture and social structure will delight, inform and amaze all who listen.
Delia Wach is a highly acclaimed water color and mixed media artist who has fallen in love with painting Teddy Bears and their friends. She has created art works for individuals and Teddy Bear Manufacturers. She has been the guest artist for many Teddy Bear events across the United States. Their experience with the Maroons is expressed through Delia s imaginative art work as she turns the Maroon Indian personalities into Teddy Bears and together she and Martin weave the stories and paintings into a magical series of children's books, Teddy Bear Guardians of the Rain Forest, now available.
The Wachs reside in Wheeling, WV and have visited over 700 schools nationwide.
