About "Nineveh: A Parody of the Present"
Sometimes termed "the bible of A.T. hiking," each year's Data Book consolidates the most basic information from 11 detailed guidebooks into a lightweight table of distances between major Appalachian Trail shelters, road-crossings, and features. It is divided according to the guidebook volumes (one state or two or, for Virginia, parts of a state) and updated each December to account for Trail relocations, new (or removed) shelters, and other changes. In addition to codes for lodging, food, water, and other essentials, the Data Book is keyed to both the individual guidebook sections and to the separate maps. Day-hikers and long-distance hikers alike rely on this volume for armchair planning as well as on-the-trail orientation. This also is the source for the ever-changing official answer to, How long is the trail?
Meet the Author
Victor Schlatter spent 7 years as a nuclear scientist before hearing to a Higher call to upgrade his career to Linguistic Analysis and Bible translation. In a South Pacific Stone Age scenario, he translated the Waola Scriptures now in their 6th printing. He found that there is no such thing as a 'primitive' language, since Stone Age Waola has over 100 endings on every verb! His translation has since generated over 130 tribal congregations with some 15,000 believers across Papua New Guinea.
The Schlatters then reached out in a Pacific-wide ministry tying Isaiah's oft repeated 'Islands of the Sea' to a long-prophesied Israel reborn. Having made annual trips to Jerusalem since 1988, he has maintained in-depth research on the ever-escalating, never-ending Middle East countdown, especially as it reflects biblical prophecy. He is founder and Director of South Pacific Island Ministries, represents the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem to the South Pacific Islands and lectures globally.
He was awarded the Queen's Papua New Guinea Independence Medal in 1975 for recognised service to the Southern Highlands, and was selected for Who's Who in Queensland, Australia in 2007. He is author of Where Is the Body? (translated into Russian, Finnish and Dutch); Showdown of the Gods; Who Told You that You Were Naked?; Nineveh: A Parody of the Present - Biblical Clues to the Rise and Fall of America; and Genetically Modified Prophecies; Whatever Happened to all the Sand and Stars God promised to Abraham?
He and his wife, Elsie, reside in Australia.
