identity of his Great, Great Grandfathers, Charlie Maddaus travels

Ensuing visits unveil not only the identities of his forebearers and
their creative endeavors, but the First Awakening of Latvian
history. In the process the unique culture of Latvia, its literature,
art, song and dance come alive.
