My father loved history. He grew up in a very rural town in southern New Mexico. He often told me that books were his way to escape his surroundings during his childhood and adolescent years. Through reading and travel, he learned about various points of European history that would equal the knowledge of a true historian. He often took me on his travels throughout the world where we could see living remnants of history that I had read in my school texts. We would also explore antique stores to admire remarkable pieces of furnishings, art, and other collectibles. This exploration of novelty antiques led my father to make some very rare purchases. Some of my favorite pieces of his collection were his replicas of Celtic and Spanish swords, even a breastplate.
