About the Book

Ever since he was a young man he would write long letters to his family and friends. Many people liked them and even saved them. Some said that he would be a great writer someday. Growing up in the wild days of the late 60s gave him plenty to write about. Living through the hippie daze of sex, and drugs and rock and roll put him on the search for that cosmic consciousness, if there was really such a thing ? Getting drafted really changed all that. What started as a bunch of guys chipping in to cop some grass in the Village ended up on speed boats and planes. Then the United States Air Force became the biggest smugglers in the world. Nothing was what it seemed to be, deception ruled. Join Doug on a wild ride through the California coast and America, SE Asia, Europe , Africa and behind the Iron Curtain. After all of that it was time to switch the tables and go after sex trafficking and the human smugglers. But the biggest journey was finding love and then finding God.
