The book takes place all over the world, Central America, South America, Asia, Europe and much in the Atlantic Ocean. The author thinks the book as a "different" sort of book and will realize that it is easy to see today's people can be very different and grow up in a world full of different experiences. “There are very few people who have lived and survived such a complex life from child hood to adult life,” the author describes his life.

An excerpt from the book “Of Bullets, Bombs, and Armored Cars, My Life Adventures”:
The world was changing fast in those days. There was the Cold War which was very hot for some of us. There had been the Korean War too. There was communist intrigue on a world wide scale never known before. It was the days of the semi fictional British Agent Kurt Strong. Perhaps a certain amount of Agent 007 was based on real happenings, who knows...

Harden hopes readers will know that their life can be interesting and complex, and that they can survive terrible things that are thrown at them as they go through life.

About the Author
Scott J. Harden was born on September 28, 1930, at Syracuse, New York. After attending various colleges and universities, he moved to Mexico and then became an electronic navigator in the Gulf of Mexico. He had obtained a radio officer’s and other merchant marine licenses in the United States which led into doing a large number of marine jobs for the United States Navy, the Department of Defense, CIA and such in about 20 countries. He moved to Washington, D.C., where he started work for the Voice of America and immediately went overseas to Europe and Korea among his many jobs. In Europe, he had the chance to work with a large number of Russians and report back to Ronald Reagan that Russia in 1985 was falling apart. A branch of the government attempted to use Harden's Near East knowledge and pressed him to move to the Near East, something he knew was hazardous, so he instead moved to Alaska for the Federal Aviation Administration. He was also an aircraft pilot and a helicopter pilot so it fit nicely. He later retired from the FAA in Alaska and lived on a large lake north of Anchorage. Readers may reach the author through
