Manuel considers himself the wealthiest boy in all of Mexico. He freely roams the countryside with his faithful dogs. He hunts, fishes, and basks in the fresh air. However, he's the son of a peasant woman who is deeply in love with Manuel's father, a wealthy Mexican land owner. Because of their class differences, the relationship between his parents is forbidden.
Tylor Llewlyn Camron, an English aristocrat who is a detective for Scotland Yard, meets his future bride, Janet Barton. She falls in love with Tylor on their first encounter while visiting Europe from the United States with her sister. He plans their honeymoon in Australia's outback and can't wait to share it with his new bride. It is there that they stumble upon the body of an American movie star who has fallen from her horse. Was it murder or was it an accident?
These are just a few of my favorite stories of how our country started. The brave men and women in this book are only a fraction of the American heroes who have given all of their energies to make America what it is today. I hope future generations will follow their examples.
