The first book that my parents bought me was an adventure story; the story of a young boy-a little older than I was-traveling from Germany to Africa.1 As I read the narrative, I imagined that I was on the way to Africa. After all, we lived in Hamburg, Germany, a major seaport. Each day I took the subway called U-Bahn to my school, and I envisioned that on that day I would not go to school, but I would get on one of the ships leaving the harbor. Africa-it sounded mysterious, inviting, and a place of adventure. In my mind I made that journey, but in actuality I did not make it to Africa until four decades later.
