Dan's memoir, mostly truth, part fiction is based upon a true story. It is a tribute to his older brother Rich, whom he will always consider a casualty of the post-Vietnam era.

Rich mysteriously reappears along with his '66 GTO convertible and coerces Dan to retrace the cross-country route he took back in '70 to settle in a commune in Corrales, New Mexico.

Along the way they relive memories of the brief 18 years they shared growing up in a single parent household of five kids. In the absence of Dan's father, he wanted to be just like his older brother, Rich.

My older brother Rich disappeared under mysterious conditions while living in a commune in 1970.

Several years ago I was overcome with a thought: "What if two brother's could communicate across time and space?"

My belief that it was possible to communicate with my long lost brother motivated me to create my story and retrace his cross-country journey with his spirit beside me in his '66 GTO convertible. (less)

Brother, Brother: A Brother's Search for his Missing Brother... (Biographies & Memoirs)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 30, 2016 06:02AM
Description: Missing in America for the past 45 years, brother Rich mysteriously reappears along with his '66 GTO convertible and coerces me to retrace the cross-country route he took back in '70 to settle in a commune in Corrales, New Mexico. With me taking control behind the wheel and him in the passenger seat, I recreate some of his experiences as a flower child/Jesus freak. We visit places like The Badlands, Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Yellowstone, The Grand Tetons, the Haight/Ashbury District, Yosemite, The Grand Canyon and Zion National Park in an attempt to understand the life he chose, which was so drastically different from mine. Along the way we relive memories of the brief 18 years we shared growing up in the absence of our alcoholic father in a struggling single-parent household of five kids. In exploring our relationship, I confront several personal issues surrounding the role Rich played in shaping who I am and the impact his disappearance has had on my life.
