Presentation In Amarillo, Texas

Presentation was attended with about 60 people. They all sat spellbound and loved the story. They were very excited about the book and especially found all the artifacts of great interest.

There were lots of people taking pictures and one from the newspaper. There was a big article in their local paper.

This story appeals to all age groups.
