How many children do you know whose field trips include flying in a Cessna 180? This was one of the many rich experiences that missionary pilot Larry Puckett brought to our family when we were fellow missionaries in Mexico. Larry’s wife, Doris, recently published an account of the Puckett’s adventures in the mountains of Mexico: “In The Hollow of His Hand.”
To help Doris market her new book, I put together a simple Web site: www.puckettbook.com. It includes all the pictures from the book (only bigger, sharper, and in color). It also provides an easy link to Amazon.com, where the book can be purchased. Take a look at some of the excerpts from the book (click here). I think you’ll get a feel for why I wanted to help my old friends tell their fascinating story. While you’re at it, go to Amazon and buy a copy for yourself!
Incidentally, I built this Web site with relative ease using the blogging platform, WordPress. I took one of the many free “themes” and adapted its templates and styles to appropriately present Doris’ book. Since it is built on a blogging platform, Doris is able to log in to the site and make additions and corrections with nothing more than a Web browser.
