My dad, Charles William Mann, was born in 1927 in Prescott, a small town in rural Arkansas. He left home at seventeen to work in the Houston shipyards. He then joined the Merchant Marines and sailed around the world at the end of WW II. His odyssey continued when he returned to Arkansas and married Mary Frances Ward. After holding jobs as a route salesman for the El Dorado Coffee Company, running a paint-manufacturing plant and selling life insurance, Charles went to work in the train yards of the Cotton Belt Railroad as a painter in 1964 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. That new beginning led to a position as a union labor representative with the Brotherhood of Railway Carmen, a role which would ultimately carry him all the way to the national offices in Washington D.C. This miscellaneous collection of stories spans the breadth of his life from his childhood in Prescott to white collar Washington D.C. and back again. Much has been omitted or lost, but I hope that all who stop to visit the journey he took will discover something, not just about the nature of the times in which he lived, but about the special nature of the man.

This latest book of suspense by R. M. Ahmose contains two tales that, once again, address controversial issues. The first tells the story of a police officer who performs his duties with a certain flair and seeming disregard for consequences. Still, he's a good cop whose passion for fighting crime puts him on a collision course with real evil. Story Two explores the concept of euthenics. What happens when a global organization spares no expense to create conditions for improving the human species? This tale, too, flies recklessly "off the rails." The author is a dedicated and imaginative writer of fictional suspense designed to expand the reader's thinking. From decades of life experience, he has gained a profound understanding of human behavior and motivation. Educationally, he earned a BA degree in History and an MS degree in Applied Psychology. Together, these factors comprise the source from which Ahmose draws to produce his plethora of engrossing tales.

Rails Trails and Other Tales weaves the reader through the romance and adventure of hopping freight trains and being out in the wilderness. Along with others, there are stories of dogs, ducks and commentaries on the misunderstood mule. Stories lived and stories handed down, kept alive with the telling and given longevity with the pen. Adventure and experiences through which the reader can get an idea of how life in the open and on the move can get into ones psyche to the point that wondering becomes solace to a wayward spirit. Some experiences in life we pursue and acquire, others just come along and happen to us when we put ourselves in their paths. Either way experiences and adventures are elements in life that give substance to our memories. We may not be able to experience all we wish, but we can, visit some experiences lived by others. You, reader may not be able to wander in the fi rst person but here you can sit back and do some arm-chair wandering and have a look at some other tid-bits of life. Also you may get a little look into what can happen sometimes when one just casts his way into the winds of chance. Meynardie
