People leave footprints that run through other lives. Sometimes they gradually increase to make a path, which becomes a trail, then a rutted road, a highway, a freeway, and on and on into one's fading memories. Some of them are but little puffs in the dust or snow, while others are huge craters and ruts in the mud that leave big scars or become great indelible lessons about life as one passes through the world system toward eternity.
The people and events mentioned in this book are real and are recorded as accurately as possible. So as not to misrepresent anyone or anything, many unclear parts have been omitted.
The Japanese American WWII experience had a heavy impact on the circumstances that shaped the sociological, psychological, and spiritual post-war life of Mr. Oiye. This book is written to illustrate how God chose the author to become a believer and follower of Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord from the beginning, and how He guarantees that it will not only happen, but He will continue to provide the means to match the circumstance. "Just getting old is a sterile way of life, but growing old gracefully is a God-given gift."

George Oiye was born in a log cabin at a gold mining camp atop the Continental Divide in 1922. His parents were first-generation immigrants from Japan. He grew up in rural Montana at the headwaters of the Missouri River that the Lewis and Clark Expedition discovered. The banks of the mighty Missouri River were his playgrounds during the Great Depression days. Being an all-American boy was of utmost importance among his peers.
While attending Montana State College, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, and George became a man without a country. Ironically, he became a hero of WWII and survived to become an engineer in aerospace, rocketry, and large lasers, as well as a Christian Bible teacher/evangelist.
