This month's show is with guest John Wilson and author of over thirty novels and non-fiction books for children, teens and adults, all of which are historically based. His passion for the past and for creating stories has taken him to Roman Germany, Renaissance London, a Civil War prison camp, New Mexico and Arizona in the 1870s. Although his mind leads him throughout history, John's prime interest is in the First and Second World Wars, which are the settings for several of his titles.

As he travels through the scorched landscape, Jim crosses paths with a variety of characters, each of whom adds one more link in a chain of discovery that leads back to a dark, violent past. Jim learns that uncovering the past can also lead to opening up the future.
