9780984664412: Patriot Acts

An epic historical novel—a war story, a love story, a coming of age story—spanning 70 years. In the remote fields of North Dakota in 1966 a questioning college student’s search for answers about America’s involvement in the Vietnam War leads him into a world of intrigue and danger. After discovering two mysterious strangers posing as farmers, he is consumed by the need to know the story of their dark past during World War II and the reason for their presence in America. With the help of a beautiful, enigmatic stranger he uncovers their secrets, but in his search for clarity he discovers that most of history is recorded in shades of gray. Forced to confront his own feelings about the draft, the morality of war, and the conflict between society and the individual, he finds himself questioning his country, his beliefs and his faith in humanity.

About the Author:

Jim Lies and Gene Frazer were born and raised in New Rockford, North Dakota, a locale featured prominently in Patriot Acts. Jim is five years older than Gene, so they didn’t hang out together growing up, but both followed similar paths. After successful high school athletic careers, both attended the University of North Dakota (UND) in Grand Forks on football scholarships, and both also wound up teaching in the Grand Forks public school system; Jim taught regular and AP History at Grand Forks Central High School, and Gene taught English at Red River High School. Eventually, they wound up living a few blocks from each other and became close friends. Jim holds a B.S. Degree in Social Studies and a Master of Education Degree in Secondary Administration; his passion for researching the history of the German-Russian front during World War II led to one of the plot lines of Patriot Acts. Jim retired from teaching in 1998 and still resides in Grand Forks, North Dakota, with his wife. Gene has a B.S. Degree in English and a Master’s Degree in Journalism and Mass Communication. After leaving teaching, he spent over 20 years in the incentive and consulting fields. He retired in 2001 and lives in Woodbury, Minnesota, with his wife. Jim and Gene are currently working on an as-yet-to-be-named follow-up to Patriot Acts.
