And yet . . . there was something so vivid in the telling, that we were persuaded to send the journal for analysis.

The results were absolutely astonishing. Everything in the journal of Charlie Small is true.

And . . . not only that . . . even though Charlie Small is only eight, he must have lived for over four hundred years!
