Description - Old Dime Box Stories by Niel Hancock
Drafted in the middle of the Vietnam War, Niel Hancock shipped out from Oakland as the Flower Children were converging on San Francisco and arrived in Saigon in time for the cataclysmic Tet offensive of 1968. "Old Dime Box Stories" is the saga of his wide-ranging, lifelong quest for meaning, his memories ever cycling between a remembered Vietnam and the West Texas-New Mexico borderland where he grew up, equidistant from Alamagordo, where the first atom bomb was tested in 1945, and Roswell, where the UFO crashed in 1947. These mythic events of his boyhood tipped him off that there was more to reality than meets the eye, and lengthy road trips on his Harley-Davidson gave him time to think. Recollecting the foolishness and practical wisdom of a wide range of off-beat characters he has met on the journey, he realizes that all along, even in the chilling heat of war, he has seen signs pointing him onto the Road to the Sacred Mountain, his destination all along.
