Chapter 29 of Fine Line is Wars and Rumors of War. Fine Line is the sequel to Woodcutter’s Revival. Both books, written by Jerry Slauter are historical fiction set at the beginning of the final phase of the Industrial Revolution.

Europe had already engaged in World War I. President Wilson was doing all he could to keep America out of the war. General "Black Jack" Pershing wanted to get “boots on the ground” in Europe and he was using any political influence he had to accomplish that end. Wilson sent him instead, to chase Poncho Villa out of New Mexico and around Mexico. The expedition was called the Punitive Expedition. Pershing wondered if the objective was to punish Villa or him.

Corporate America cranked up the propaganda machine in an effort to engage the United Sates in the European Conflict. Daryl became a war correspondent and was assigned to the Punitive Expedition. He drew upon his education with the Editor-In-Chief to distinguish between fact and propaganda and report accurate news. Here is an excerpt from the chapter:

Richard educated and indoctrinated Daryl every day on the microcosm and macrocosm of the newspaper business. He said, “We live in the microcosm. We can be in the middle of a major event and not realize the significance. You might be a soldier, caught up in a war and so preoccupied with survival that you never consider the motives of the leaders and politicians. You do not know if they were backed by the globalists and industrialists, and if you were manipulated into being there. You do not see the big picture from the trenches”

He never really appreciated how sophisticated Richard was for a small town editor. Richard told Daryl on a daily basis, “You are not creating the news. You are not discovering some new science or establishing new facts. You are connecting the dots. The dots are out there and people see them. They just fail to realize how interconnected they are and how events cause reactions in other occurrences like a string of dominoes.”

Woodcutter’s Revival is available to read now. Fine Line will be available in late 2014.
