Forward by Steve Mumford

Mary Hunt Jentsch (left), who once worked for Houghton Mifflin, wrote Trek in 1959  and died in 1972.

Her grandson, Steve Mumford, who wrote the Foreword and Epilogue, is the author of the 2005 book, Bagdhad Journal: An Artist in Occupied Iraq. The late Peter Jennings on ABC News: World News Tonight, said that Steve Mumford “comes from a great wartime tradition of something more enduring than the daily news…[he] helps us see a difficult war from yet another perspective.” Mumford’s Foreword describes how his grandmother (and his mother, one of the two “small children”) ended up in Germany during World War II. His epilogue poignantly chronicles who lived, who died, and how his grandmother’s family, just like Germany, was cut in two.
