The time period is set for thelate 1950s, with a clash of a hundred years ago in time. Matthew and hisgrandfather go on a journey into the past to help a relative. During thatjourney, they discover the importance of what family really means. Matthew andhis grandfather find out that age does not matter, for time passes in the blinkof an eye. Life is nothing more than love and standing up for what is right.Together they find the strength and love to join in an expedition for truth,understanding, and what turns out to be a family bond of many years.A little imagination from youth,intrigue of what is around the next corner, and family beingthe most important thing in life are within the pages of this book. Thisstory goes back to a time, when family members depended on one another, nomatter the problem. Respect and admiration of the young and old is the intendedpurpose of this short writing. While grappling with the problems of today, muchof our innocence has been lost. The hope that children today will ever have theopportunity to touch the quietness of youth as older generations had, is all but gone. The simple pleasure of making a snowfort, or riding down that first hill on a sled, with the snow blowing in ourfaces is something we all have forgotten.
