What does a young Navajo lad do when he discovers buried treasure worth over $500,000, just after he joins the Navy? Combine that problem with the discovery of a wrecked and abandoned high-technology aircraft -- would you try to fix it, or turn it in? He has just graduated and has to make the decision as to what direction he must go. Al has studied Russian and German and thinks that being a technical interpreter may be a good job in the Navy. He enlists the help of his Uncle Ben, a retired Navy helicopter pilot and medicine man with his Korean girlfriend, Mae Lee. Together with his mother, they decide to use some of the money to form a study group research teaching untrained Navajos to become wage earners in an area of high chronic unemployment—The Four Corners side of New Mexico. In a childhood of being a loner, he develops skill at being a leader with a massive curiosity. He loves his mother who raised him after his father abandoned them in poverty in a harsh land. Their project is joined by others who add wonderful ideas to the task. Al's knowledge of how to use the Internet to acquire requested information starts to expand the envelope. Al has learned gambling games such as craps and video poker on his computer with no money. He learns that it is different in the real world of Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Al Joe look for a hobby and finds that prospecting for rocks, minerals, historical artifacts and history can be exciting. Are the Anasazi the predecessors of the Navajo tribe? How did they come to the Four Corners area of New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona and Utah. Where did they go? What do the pictographs mean that are found in the castle-like ruins of Mesa Verde, Aztec, and Cholla parks? Al's team investigates possible future developments in housing, aerial fire fighting equipment, new power sources, gravity-based appliances, prospecting, treasure hunting and a different way to change forest lumber production. The Author (below) has spent thirty years working with these proud people and has spun this yarn hoping you will enjoy the romp.
