Before you plunge into Hall’s journals, take a few minutes to find out who he was and to get a general idea of the itinerary of his journey. You can do that by first reading ABOUT HALL (look for the link at the very top of this home page or in the left column that appears on each page). Then maybe read HALL’S FRIENDS. BUILDING CONNECTIONS TO HALL also gives you an overview, but from another perspective.The rest of those links can wait till later. (I’m the daughter, in case you don’t know me.)
Mostly, try to remember that this guy had just turned 21 and thought he could conquer the world. In a way he did just that. Enjoy!
