a political novel by John P. Nordin

For years Americans who cared about justice have been traveling to places their government told them not to so they could find out for themselves what was true and what was not. I went on one of those "Accompaniment" trips to El Salvador in 1991.

But what is it like to be on the receiving end; to be the less powerful, the poor? This novel presumes that our worst nightmares of expanding government power have come true and now, as a small rebel movement tries to restore our democracy, people come to visit us to support us in our struggle.

A group of such people set out from Kansas City on a prohibited trip to see the free villages deep in the Rockies.

Chapter 1 Taking off in Kansas City. Trip journals.
