A colorful account of an unusual journey by a "greatest generation" author, columnist, orator, and educator–a pilgrimage that took him on a wide range from a typical midwestern boyhood in the town that stopped Jesse James, on out to higher education, Washington DC, LA's Olvera Street, the Guinness Book of World Records, and a biography of Charles Lindbergh.

Along the way, the author was an activist on Capitol Hill for a new spirit in government.

His association with Frank Buchman and Moral Re-Armament (Initiatives of Change) led him to work with some of the early pioneers of Alcoholics Anonymous and he is credited with restoring communications between MRA and AA.

About the Author:

This Minnesota boy who grew up in Northfield as the son of a college professor records an interesting memoir that took him from president of the Carleton College student body to Harvard Law School, where he intended to pursue a political career. Under the influence of Walter H. Judd, then a medical missionary to China and later Congressman from Minneapolis, to whom the book is dedicated, the author experienced a change of direction, which took him for decades into lobbying for a new spirit in government with the Moral Re-Armament program (now Initiatives of Change). During that period he came to know and work with some of the pioneers of Alcoholics Anonymous, an MRA offshoot.

Hunter is also the author of a biography entitled The Spirit of Charles Lindbergh: Another Dimension, a look at the inner motivations of the aviator, whom he knew personally.

A lifetime champion of the public platform, Hunter was pictured in 1984 and 1985 in The Guinness Book Of World Records for a marathon Fourth of July oration at Independence Hall, Philadelphia. He was also the founder of the annual Walk to Los Angeles. from the Mission San Gabriel, an event commemorating the founding of Los Angeles, September 4, 1781.

Hunter and his wife, the former Mary Louise Merrell, who have produced three sons, now live in Claremont, California, a college town east of Los Angeles.
