An eight-year-old boy named James, aka the wannabe Cisco Kid, nearly lost his life as he searched for precious metal in a bone dry southwest Arizona gulley. He retrieved only pyrite before a desert flood swept away his world.  Over the course of half a century James acquired several additional nicknames. They were reflections of his multiple personalities. His dad called him Traveler or Trav. Some coworkers referred to him as Point Man. A few colleagues labeled him Knowledge Navigator or Nav. Under the cool, shimmering waters of Dutch Buffalo Creek, in 2014 A.D., Trav came upon a rusty bayonet. It was buried long ago in the Carolina Piedmont. This discovery is no coincidence; indeed, this bayonet is a symbol of the abundant riches found in the river of history that connects both the past and future. The blade reminded Point Man that all that glitters is not gold.  Nav expanded the search for real treasure beyond the water's edge. The blade was a catalyst that drove James to sift through a lifetime of artifacts and bittersweet memories. He found riches from the past and caught a glimpse of the future. Just as the bayonet glimmered in the depths of the water, so does the ongoing work of his family's unseen witnesses, the Neverborn. They reveal ancient treasures that go far beyond mere gold and silver.  James is guided into a deeper understanding that he and countless loved ones have been called by name as spoken by the prophet Isaiah: I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. Your search for real treasure begins when you realize that you are called by name. You are special in the eyes of your Creator. Your spiritual wealth will overcome all of the conflict and competition that troubles the waters in your life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Hanin.

During the day, (Grandpa John) would stand near his furnance with his sweaty, brown fedora perched on his head, and with equally sweaty green tee shirt, while he munched on chewing tobacco, as a filter through which the perennial smoke could not penetrate. Invariably, he would be surrounded, while he stood there, with what appeared to be a huge pile of metal junk. Meticulously, ...he would pull out the right materials for smelting, leaving as mementos (as I often observed) around the edge of his furnance--metal ashtrays, ship bookends, religious figures...such as statues of a monk praying, crucifixes, holy water fonts or even pewter candle holders. One day, he brought home a metal angel with a broken wing and told us it was our duty to give it a special place in our home because angels with broken wings are crying for humanity. One day, September 15, 1950 on both our large, stand up Zenith radio and on our new round-screen Zenithblack and white T.V., came some startling news that validated all the battles I had (waged) amd victories I had(won.) The battle and the man associated with it would be forever etched in my psyche and persona. The battle was Inchon and the man associated with it--General Douglas MacArthur. We open the door to the building and we were immediately confronted with five prison cells, each filled with agray or white haired man, in his 70's or 80's, in motionless states. These had to be the five P.O.W.'s we had beensearching for! At that very moment, Severino Russo, a Korean veteran of the fight for Seoul, Korea against the Chinese inMay of 1951, was now being brought through the airport by wheelchair to live with his daughter in Greenville, South Carolina. He had two worsening conditions, which did not bode well for the future--Alzheimer's and a bad heart. Coincidentally, a little boy of five years old, standing near the ticket counter blew a toy bugle his grandfather had given him that morning as a birthday present. The bugle sound stirred in Severino's long repressed memories, the thoughts of Korea and of Chinese soldiers sounding bugles as they charged. He immediately swung into action. Realizing he didn't have a gun on his person, he reached for his bayonet and in his confused state, found the only (knife) he could defend himself with from the Chinese horde, in the form of a fountain pen, long forgotten from the 1950's that he had placed in his only good suit jacket years ago. It was long-since dry and minus the cap that would normally be there. He felt the tip of his pen (or knife) and immediately looked for a Chinese aggressor.
