The original manuscript for Snapshots in Time: The S&G Railroad was never intended for publication. It was a collection of notes, stories, and photographs of a journey my grandson and I took together. My purpose was to leave something behind so that Samy would always remember the great experiences we shared.
We are now sharing our truly heartwarming and remarkable true story with you. We had always talked about what it would be like to have a time machine complete with a flux capacitor to explore places in the past and future. Little did we know we are about to unlock a “portal” that would allow us to do just that! It is important to note that we did not need a plutonium-powered DeLorean or a flux capacitor to do it.
Today readers have tens of thousands of books to choose from on a variety of topics. Snapshots in Time: The S&G Railroad offers the reader an opportunity to select a topic that is relevant to all of us. It is a story about things that matter. Our story offers an opportunity to share something with the most important people in our lives…our children and grandchildren.
We need now more than ever, true stories that uplift the human spirit, are good for the soul, and do not include the sensationalism, pessimism and violence we seem to find everywhere. Our children and grandchildren can learn valuable lessons from the past and from opportunities we provide for them.
We invite you to take our journey with us. You will find yourself in the 1800s, exploring the woods in the 1950s, on several expeditions in the present and propelled briefly into the future!
