About the speaker:
In 1945 as an American soldier in Paris, Bill Holden inhaled its atmosphere, never dreaming that one day he would exhale it into a novel, BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL. It’s based on the premise that Caribbean cannibals discovered Europe in 1500. Now comes the revolution!
DHOW OF THE MONSOON is his personal travel adventure as the lone passenger of seven Hindustani Moslems aboard an ancient sailing dhow from Zanzibar, East Africa, to Oman on the Arabian Peninsula. Weathering stifling calms and frightening monsoon storms, they voyaged for 18 days and 2,500 miles in the wake of Sinbad.
Coming out in Spring 2011 is GIVE ME 10,000 MEN, 23 House Publishing — what really happened in the 1898 battle of San Juan Hill, Cuba, during the Spanish-American War. Bill met the title character, Pvt. Alfred C. Petty, in 1960.
