He was a small child when his family crossed the Great Plains in an oxcart on their way to California. His father was killed by Indians after rescuing baby Peggy Sue who had been grabbed by the savages. Little Big Jim grew up on a ranch in Carmel Valley where he learned what it meant to be a man from his Uncle Buck. But then one day, while they were in Monterey picking up supplies for the ranch, the boy was knocked unconscious and shanghaied. Little Big Jim woke up on a clipper ship on its way to South America. His adventures continued as he was forced to seek treasure at a hidden temple high in the Andes. Would Little Big Jim ever get back to California? Would he ever see his family and Peggy Sue again? Maybe, but he wasn't done with his adventures.

About the Author

Duncan McCollum's family arrive in Salinas valley circa 1849 having crossed the Great Plains by wagon train. Duncan recalls sitting around the kitchen table for hours listening to the stories his grandparents and all their siblings would tell. Many of the events weaved into his stories come from actual events. Being a 5th generation Californian and not falling far from the family tree, Duncan lives in Aptos, CA where he and his beautiful wife Elizabeth raised their three children. He has practiced chiropractic in Santa Cruz County for the last 28 years.
