    This is the hilarious story of a poor boy from the Midwest who became one of America's topflight TV stars. But he was bothered with a boyhood dream and eventually left the big time. He made his home in three continents and became a much-loved world traveler. Through all the laughter - and it's uproarious at times - there is an underlying serious note, and the fact that his dream came true and brought him long-sought spiritual assurance is a considerable satisfaction to the reader. This is one of the best-selling Baha'i books of all time.  It is also one of the most gentle - and humorous - ways to introduce people to the name Baha'i.  You can feel comfortable giving it to just about anyone - young or old - and rest assured that they will thank you for it when they are done!
