Adventures of the Great Marlo & The Blue Pearl

This book was truly a joy to read! In the description of this book, it states it is a docu-fantasy. This may have been the first docu-fantasy book I have ever read - and if this book is a sample of this genre, I want to read more! The "docu" part refers to the real life story of the author's grandfather who lived quite an adventurous life. He joined the circus at a young age, and eventually traveled from Scotland, to Canada, to the US; he became a well-known illusionist. I especially loved his drive to get to New York City to visit Houdini at his home. But, interwoven with this factual account, complete with photos, are the mystical adventures of the Great Marko and the magic of the Blue Pearl, and other characters along the way. The spiritual knowledge given to David (the grandfather) has messages for all of us. There is a story within the story, within the story, within the story - very intriguing. I highly recommend this book; bet you have never read anything else like it.
