Evidence is Lacking. Yet I Still Hope.
Joshua Henry Bates, a young teacher in a country school, wonders if there will be more to his life, despite enjoying summers away from the farm, attending the University of Utah, dancing at Saltair, watching pictures shows and eating ice cream on bone dry summer days.
In his journal he questions his future. He finds a young woman to love, but she is an ever-mutating mystery. His job seems to be a dead-end. His parents need his help more all the time. Josh tries to change his life: cooling the relationship with his girlfriend, teaching in a new school, and registering for service in the American Expeditionary Forces.
Still, Joshua is filled with self-doubt.
Will Josh marry the girl?
Will he find a dazzling life mission?
Will he be victorious in war?
In this interactive, inquiry the reader will read, interpret and construct the story of Joshua H. Bates, an "Everyman" of the American Expeditionary Force during The Great War; never to forget him.
