1 Adams, Dan. Tales from a Century Before. an Episodic Account of a Journey Undertaken in Youth.
Santa Monica Waverly Books 2014 1495452077 / 9781495452079 First Edition; First Printing Paperback. Fine with no dust jacket 
A trade-size paperback original. Fine in pictorial printed wrappers. Illustrated. The year was 1969. Two young Americans set off on an adventure of self discovery set amid interesting times when men first walked on the Moon and a pointless war rages in a distant time-zone. What is experienced and transcended will define them always. Politics and geography make it unlikely anyone would attempt so hazardous a journey today. Back then, a yearning for personal freedom was reason enough to venture forth. ; 5 1/2" X 8 1/2"; 171 pages
