We wrote and narrated this book because someone backed into mom's car one day (Stormy) and damaged her radiator so that the air conditioning would not work. As she drives two, to 2 1/2 hours per day, she was sweating in her business attire in the summer sun and I told her, "honey, why don't you be like Jonah and ride in my blue whale?" I own a big Chrysler 300 and we call it the whale. So this book became a PUN to have fun and celebrate my wife within my eternal love across the universe and time-space memoriam. Nothing can ever remove this marker and the love of Rania Barry Isabella Mongiello for mom!

The First American Declaration of Independence?: The Disputed History of the Mecklenburg Declaration of May 20, 1775
This is a comprehensive history of one of the greatest mysteries in American history--did Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, declare independence from Great Britain more than a year before anyone else? According to local legend, on May 20, 1775, in a log court house in the remote backcountry two dozen local militia leaders met to discuss the deteriorating state of affairs in the American colonies. As they met, a horseman arrived bringing news of the battles of Lexington and Concord. Enraged, they unanimously declared Mecklenburg County "free and independent" from Great Britain. It was known as the "Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence" ("MecDec" for short). A local tavern owner named James Jack delivered the MecDec to the Continental Congress, who found it "premature."
