9781300874447: Around the World and Headed South

Few people have had the opportunity to travel and experience the changing world so quickly and at such a young age. Join James Gillespie as he recalls being born the son of Baptist Missionaries, life in China before World War Ii, life under the Japanese occupation of China, his father's imprisonment in a Japanese concentration camp, a time when non-essential Americans were being told to leave, and many other important episodes from the other side of the world of which most Americans weren't even aware. With a natural writing style that makes you feel like you're sitting down next to him around a campfire, the author unfolds tale after tale of adventure, tragedy, humor, heartache and the power of a family's love against impossible odds. Most pleasant are his memories of acclimating to life in America after the war, and the strong bond with his identical twin brother. . .including their exciting and unpredictable adventures in biology, chemistry, amateur radio, and hitchhiking in those "safer" days long ago.
