Explorer Scouts On North Pole Expedition Face Death, High Adventure And Attack By Eskimo Spirits
The lives of two Eagle Scout’s headed for the 1965 North Pole Expedition are thrown into turmoil when everything seems to go wrong. Coming of age saga with intrigue, adventure, encounters with Eskimo spirits and strong life lessons at every turn.
For two months, we took on every barrier they threw in our faces. We fixed broken tracked vehicles, built boats, turned floating ice into barges, rewired research stations, built bridges - all with scrap we found lying around. But the human obstacles paled in the face of a hidden arctic battle. The water would try to drown us. The animals would try to kill us. The endless day would try to drive us crazy. If we ever let our guard down and were tripped up by any of these, we had to face the ultimate challenge: the spirits of the dead! In the Eskimo world, death is always around every corner. If you make one mistake, the spirits of the dead are right there to steal your body. And, being tenderfeet from the world of “white men”, we wouldn’t have stood a chance without the intervention of Arnaaluk, the Shaman, and a rag-tag group of runaway eccentric geniuses.
Two new novels -- LIARS! Vol. 1: Scout to the Pole; and Vol. 2: Escape to Insanity -- are based on Nappi's experience as one of the Eagle Scouts on the 1965 North Pole Expedition. They present an epic "Atlas Shrugged" adventure filled philosophical romp through a 3 Stooges run government research world, which challenge the most fundamental beliefs of human culture. Mankind's greatest social institutions:
About Bruce Nappi
Bruce Nappi is founder and president of the A3 Society and author of the books LIARS! Vol. 1: Scout to the Pole; and Vol. 2: Escape to Insanity. An award winning scholar, he graduated from MIT with both Bachelors and Masters degrees in Astronautics ( yes, a true MIT rocket scientist ). As an engineer and manager, he used his multi-disciplined technical background to develop leading edge products in medicine, optics, production systems, military systems, and automated testing. His resume is filled with breakthroughs like: the first fully automated system to fabricate dental crowns; fastest DNA sequencing machine in the world (1990); first 512 sensor solid state array for measuring muscle contractions;
Throughout his career, he was dismayed by repeated failures of society to draw on even a fraction of the technical advances available. He was greatly disturbed that, even with ever-growing technical capabilities, the number of poor and starving kept increasing while great wealth continued to concentrate in the hands of a few. When modern communications opened the door to participative democracy, western governments, waving the banner of democracy, hypocritically established legal barriers to keep government decisions in the hands of special interests and legislative aristocrats. This led to his lifelong quest that produced the discoveries presented in the book series LIARS! The A3 Society was founded to promote those discoveries through education. His work is summarized online at A3society.org. The books are available at http://www.smashwords.com/
