From the Author:

Philippe Bunau-Varilla changed World history yet remains unknown to most people.  If it were not for him, probably the Canal would be in Nicaragua, Panama would still be part of Colombia, and the Germans would have finished the Panama Canal. 

Bunau-Varilla was the only person who actively promoted the project to other nations after the French failed to finish it, and spend almost two decades working on a plan that would ensure completion of the Panama Canal.  He had a key role in convincing the United States to abandon its decades-long plan of building the Nicaragua Canal, used a postage stamp to win votes in the Senate, and worked with Theodore Roosevelt's Government to help create the new Republic of Panama.

I am not sure why I became obsessed with Bunau-Varilla.  I think I found a historic "gold mine" in terms of the fantastic story that remained ignored for so long, and my goal is to share it because what actually happened is so incredible it appears to be fiction (but it is not!).  For a sample, look at Chapter 31, available on itookpanama.com.

My short novel is innovative in that it presents Bunau-Varilla's story in a comprehensive, easy to read way which allows people to fully grasp the extent of this remarkable man's effect on World history.  Most readers tell me they cover the book in a couple of days, and the biggest complain (so far) is that the book should have been longer.  To me that is a good complaint!
