About this title


This amusing tale is the perfect summer read. If you are a parrot head, like warm weather, or have a calendar with a tropical scene, then this book is for you. George Forder loved his job and the comfort of his home. He had been a company man for many years until the fateful day he was "let go." In desperation to find work, he seeks out a former employer who sets him on a quest which will change his life forever.

About the Author:

Michael T. Harber is a writer, and explorer. He has written a number of books, mostly to bide his time between destinations. He doesn’t claim to be an intellectual, having dropped out of high school to travel, but as one who wanders the land where palm trees grow he has learned to tell a good story. His world is unlike many who wander this world. He has no fixed address, but prefers to lean on the compassion of friends and family who take him in when his wallet runs dry. He met up with Paul Rose while Paul was doing some research in Key West, FL. They had some rum, found an instant kinship, and have stayed in touch. They plan to get together in the Caymans sometime soon. M.T. has been known to work as a deck hand to make his passage from place to place. He has, therefore, boarded million dollar yachts as a cook, mechanic, captain’s mate, and bartender – all without any previous experience or knowledge.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
