Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet. A BOOK, to be worth reading, must do more than amuse and interest. It must be instructive to be of real value to the reader. This book has a three- fold purpose: First, Thhru is an interesting romance. Second, It teaches a moral lesson and proves the natural laws laid down in the Bible. Third, It shows the value of gajn, foreknowledge and preparedness.

It has been well said that truth is stranger than fic- tion. This story is founded on facts and events, many of which have happened or will happen in the future.

The “Tunnel Thru the Air” is mysterious and con- tains a valuable secret, clothed in veiled language. Some will find it the first time they read it, others will see it in the second reading, but the greatest number will find the hidden secret when they read it the third time. You will read it the first time because you are inter- ested in the love story and for amusement.

This will create a desire to read it a second time for instruction and knowledge. The second reading will unfold some of the hidden meanings and you will gain knowledge thru understanding which will stimulate an incent- FOREWORD ive to put knowledge gained into action.

You will read it the third time because you want to make your dreams and ideals become real and find how to start knowledge into action. When you read it the third time, a new light will dawn. It contains the key to the process by which you may know all there is to know and get all that you need to supply your demands and desires. You will appreciate why Solomon said, “Wis- dom is the principal thing: You will know that by fol- lowing the laws laid down in the Bible, man’s last great enemy, Death, will be overcome and will understand why Jesus rose on the third day and rested on the seventh day.

Robert Gordon’s seven days will no longer be a mystery because you will have gained under- standing.


I believe this book will prove interesting and valuable to men and women in all walks of life. If it does, you will be thankful to the power that guided my hand in showing you the way to eternal Truth.

My object will have been accomplished and I will have my reward. She had always hoped that this, her third son, would be bom on Sunday, but he was born late Saturday night, June 9th, A few months before his birth, his mother had suffered a severe shock on account of the death of her oldest son in the San Francisco earthquake in April, and for a time it was feared that her third son might never be born to live.

She was happy this Sunday morning when she looked at her bouncing baby boy, dreamed of his future, and thought of what his name should be. Calvin Gordon, the baby’s father, had been a Captain in the U. He had won distinction for his cool courage and daring nerve, and after the close of the Spanish-American war, moved from Tennessee to Texas. Gordon had been very much depressed after the loss of his eldest son in the San Erancisco earthquake, and was very much cheered up at the birth of this boy, and hoped that the youngest son might ful- fill the ambitions he had for his first born.

Gordon remained with his wife so that they could talk over the naming of their son. Amelia Gordon was a great Bible student, and had always hoped that she would have a son born who would be a preacher, so she thought that little Robert might fulfill her hopes and ambitions. Gordon was a farmer, growing mostly cotton crops on the Red River bottom lands. The following year,after the birth of little Robert, Capt.


Gor- don’s crops were almost a failure. The Spring was late and overflows damaged cotton. This, together with unfavorable financial conditions, caused a panic in the United States in the Fall of Thus the first year of the boy’s life started under unfavorable conditions.

When Robert was a little over two years old, his mother gave birth to a girl, the first born to her, but still she showed great interest in Robert ; talked much of his future and took great interest in teaching him to live according to the Bible. He learned very quickly how to read and write, before he started to school. He was always willing and glad to go to Sunday School with his mother, took a great interest in the sermon, and what the Sunday School teacher had to say about the creation of the world, and about God’s great plan.

Then we which are alive and remain, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: Wherefore comfort one an- other with these words. His mind puzzled over this for weeks and months, and he was anxious to understand more about it. He said, “Mother, I should like to meet the Lord in the air.

W. D. Gann: The Tunnel Thru the Air

His mother explained that God would destroy those that were sinners and rebelled against him and had not accepted his word. Bobbie was in Sunday School again and heard them read from 1 Tim. tjru

But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived; but the woman being deceived, was in the transgression.

He also wanted an explanation of the statement that a woman should not teach, because he said that his mother had always taught him and loved him, and his father had paid no atten- tion to him and had no desire to teach him. He wanted to know if it was wrong for his mother to teach him, and if God would punish her.

The teacher replied that the Lord said, “Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is te Kingdom of God. He was often afraid that the goblins would get him if he didn’t watch out. A few Sundays later, the minister took his text from 2 Tim. His mother told him it would be at the time of the end of the world and God would again come to destroy the world by fire. The minister continued to read from 2 Tim. His mother told him that the Bible said, “A little child shall lead them,” and that anyone who would harm little children, can in no wise enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

The old darky said that the spirit of a beautiful lady walked on the waters of the lake at night and that w. Long, long years ago, the daughter of a wealtliy planter fell in love with a poor but honest boy and after many years of courtship, in which they spent many moonlight nights rowing on the beautiful lake, the time came when they felt that they could no longer be sepa- rated.

The young man pleaded with her father to cr. They then planned to elope one niglt- and as her sweetheart was placing a ladder under the window and helping her to get down, her father shot her lover and killed him.

When she found that he was dead, she ran to thur lake tunne drowned herself. They searched for days for her body and one moonlight nigbi they vann her walking on the water.

He said that the fish would always bite better at full moon, but the darkies were afraid to fish there because the spirit of this beautiful young lady walked on the water. He told his mother that the Sunday School teacher had read in the Bible where Christ walked on the water, and he wanted her to explain how tunnl could happen. She told him that all of those things happened in the days of miracles which had passed and no longer happened in these days.

Bobbie had a great desire to walk or ride upon the water, and was enthusiastic about bicycles. He told his mother that he intended to build a bicycle some day that he could ride on the water.


Inakr war broke out, Capt. Gordon, who had once served in the Spanish-American War, became very much interested in the conflict and followed it very closely, reading the papers daily and talking about it. Robert soon began to take great interest in the war and asked his father and mother many questions about the foreign countries which were involved in the great strug- gle. He would sit for hours, listening to his mother read the Bible, from the Book of Revelation, the prophe- cies of the Great War, where it says that nation shall rise against nation.

She talked of tunenl grandfather, Colonel Robert Gordon, for whom he was named, and how he became famous during the Civil War, and how later Robert’s own father went with Colonel Roosevelt and became a Captain in the Spanish-American War in Rob- ert’s oldest brother, Herbert, was born inand his second brother, Ralph, was born in after his father went to the war.

His mother spent many anxious months and worried with the children while Capt. Gor- don was away at war. She prayed that war would be ended for all time.

She said, “Bobbie, you come from a generation of fighters on both sides, but I hope that you will be a minister and preach against war. While the tragic death of your brother Herbert in San Francisco was a shock that I have never zir recovered from, yet I had rather know that he went that way than to have him go to war and lose his life.

I remember well the many sleepless nights that I have passed thru while your father was away at war and how happy I was when he returned. I prayed to God then that war might be ended and that none of my sons would ever have to go to war.

I hope I live to see that day and I feel sure you will. A few nights before you were bom I had a very strange dream. I thought I saw San Francisco and Los Angeles de- stroyed tunnrl two days by some war machine, and that one of my sons came near losing his life there, but was saved and afterwards he saved his country and made peace with the world.

I suppose I dreamed about San Francisco because Herbert lost his life there but, some- how, I feel that it was more than a dream, and that you are bom to be a peacemaker. Bob- bie would tell him that Runnel wanted him to be peaceful and that his mother wanted him to be a peacemaker and that he would not fight. His mother would commend him for this and tell him that the Bible said to control your temper and not let your angry passions rise. About this time some of the prejudice which little Robert had inherited from his grandfather and from his father, began to show forth.

Unfavorable conditions thruout the country and the low price of cotton left Capt. Gordon practically penniless, causing him and all of his children to labor hard in order to support themselves. He would play around the house, use his father’s tools and talk about the great inventions that he was going to yhe. His mother was always in sympathy with Eobert and tried to encourage him, but she could never get him to take an interest in working on a farm.

He talked of being a preacher, talked of great inventions and discoveries, but would not work at hard labor.

He had great ambitions to join the Army and go to the war. His older brother Ralph joined the Army. Young Robert said that if he could not go and fight for his country he would stay at home and work on a patent which would help them to win the war. He did not agree or get along with his older brother and was glad when he had gone away to war.

Tunnnel parents were still in poor thry but they could not induce young Robert to do any work on the farm. He continued to tinker around and work with his father’s tools, trying to make a bicycle which he could ride upon the water in the lake nearby.
