In “A Word to Launch This Book,” Stidger writes that it is a collection of “stories which I have picked up in my reading, living, adventuring way across the continent and around the earth…They are not my stories, but the stories of the people themselves; and in that mood I dare to present them in this form, hoping that just as they have thrilled and stirred my soul so will they stir and thrill the souls of the readers of this book” (p. 9).
