'Honor in the Dust' is less about the freedom of the Philippines than the soul of the United States.

《尘埃中的荣誉》与其说是菲律宾的自由,不如说是美国的灵魂。

More often than not, real life is so rich, complex and unpredictable that it would seem completely implausible in the pages of a novel.

更多的时候,现实生活是如此丰富、复杂和不可预测,以至于在小说的书页上看起来完全不可信。

When I began work on my first book, 'The River of Doubt,' which tells the story of Theodore Roosevelt's 1914 descent of an unmapped river in the Amazon rainforest, I thought of it as a tale of adventure, exploration and extraordinary courage.

当我开始写我的第一本书《怀疑之河》时,我认为这是一个冒险、探索和非凡勇气的故事。这本书讲述了西奥多·罗斯福1914年在亚马逊河雨林中一条未绘制地图的河流的下落。

I had a moment in the Library of Congress among the presidential papers. I opened a folder, and there was an envelope in it. The front of the envelope was facing the table, so I didn't know what was in it. I opened it and out spilled all this hair. I turned the envelop over and it says, 'Clipped from President Garfield's head on his deathbed.'

我在国会图书馆的总统文件中呆了一会儿。我打开一个文件夹,里面有一个信封。信封的正面对着桌子,所以我不知道里面装了什么。我打开它,把头发都洒了出来。我把信封翻过来,上面写着:“从加菲尔德总统临终前的头上剪下来的。”

As someone who has long loved history and reads a lot of history, especially when you get a distance like 130 years, these people can seem almost mythical, and you need something tangible to make them real.

作为一个长期热爱历史并阅读大量历史的人,尤其是当你走了130年的路程,这些人看起来几乎是神话,你需要一些有形的东西来让他们成为现实。
