Such a good book that many people mistakenly go to Hawaii and ask to see Abner Hale's grave--but he's a fictional character!

Historical drama & story telling author James A. Michener could fill a personal library w/his works alone. Chesapeake, Centential, Poland, Mexico, Hawaii, Tales of the South Pacific, Caravans, Space, The Bridge at Andau, etc. If I had to choose a favorite: 'The Source' because it looks at humanity & religion.
