The voyage of Jason and the heroes aboard the Argo is one of the more famous Greek myths. Jason’s quest is to find the golden fleece and bring it back to his homeland. En route, the Argonauts—as he and his companions are called—have many frightening adventures as they travel far from home. With the help of the gods and of Medea, who has fallen in love with him, Jason meets the challenge. But when Jason and Medea marry and return to Greece, their life turns tragic. As readers follow the suspenseful tale of Jason and the Argonauts, they will glimpse a lively Greek culture—and in these characters, they may recognize a piece of themselves.

John Hunt is a kind and gregarious man. His eyes twinkle and his face beams. He is a retired businessman and still retains that drive. I met John the summer of 2000. He came for the graduation ceremony of the crew of students that Jason had led, and we talked. Jason had a difficult course which is common for new instructors. The next summer Jason emerged as a solid leader and had a wonderful course. Several months later while on a climbing vacation in British Columbia Jason took a tragic fall. His family's reaction was to create a foundation in Jason's name that supported his love of the outdoors. The Jason William Hunt Foundation had had tremendous impact on many people especially young people in transition who want to expand their horizons. This happens in an outdoor setting lead by instructors like Jason. It happens every summer at the Wilderness School. John's only son, Jason, will forever be twenty-four years old. My son John is twenty-five. Our sons like many young men seek adventure. Parents care deeply about their children and the fear of losing a child dwells in all of us. How does a parent cope with the tragic loss of their beloved child? Walking with Jason is a quest to trace Jason's brief life as a young man. John becomes the youthful adventurer and visits Jason's world. John seemingly falls through the looking glass and discovers a mysterious and wonderful world inhabited by troubled adolescents, craggy Thru-hikers, idealistic outdoor leaders and others who visit nature's realm. Ultimately John's odyssey is a very personal journey of self-discovery and gives us a compass bearing on how to deal with the sudden loss of a child. I will forever be connected to Jason, Danielle, Amy, Rosemarie and John. Thank you for generous hearts and concern for youth. Tom Dyer, L.C.S.W.

IN SEARCH OF JASON is the story of Jason Reilly, a lowly employee at B. Pictures, a cut-rate New York City film production company, whose owner, Mr. B. is a confidante of many curious characters inhabiting both sides of the law. In the course of one of his many errands for Mr. B., Jason goes to hand some papers to a diplomat at the United Nations and in the course of his time there, misplaces a film script he was carrying. From that loss, dire consequences arise, for the film for which the script was written was to have been shot in the Caribbean, with the production serving as cover for a drug-courier operation run by one of Mr. B.s less-than-legitimate pals, an underworld dynamo named Sicky. In addition to his illegal interests, Sicky has entertained a lifelong legitimate interest in some day becoming a major feature film producer. Thus, the idea of someone like Jason not only endangering his profits, which would be bad enough, but also imperiling his cinematic opportunity of a lifetime is an outrage to which the only answer can be one of summary execution! Now, its one thing when youre seeking to prove your innocence to a law officer who, theoretically, is subject to some constraints, but when youre trying to explain yourself to a paranoid gunman who acknowledges no laws save those in his own, options become more limited. Such is the case for Jason. So, after narrowly avoiding being murdered in his bed and getting run over by a speeding car aimed at a pay phone booth hes calling from, Jason makes his escape from the city. He heads for the New Jersey Turnpike, Chesapeake Bay, Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, the Florida swamps, Miami and, finally, the Caribbeans blue carpet. Along he way, he picks up a partner in crime - or perhaps innocence. Dr. Sam Albert is a former 1960s college revolutionary, present-day psychiatrist and off-hours bush pilot, whose set of wings Jason finds useful in Miami, when the ships captain hes hired to take him afloat begins to cause problems. Later, while island-hopping in the Caribbean with Albert, Jason gets, unwittingly, another partner in the form of Aringapu, a Central American Indian whose ancestors, 500 years earlier, were either massacred or driven off the very island where Sicky now proposes to set up his supreme shoot. You wouldnt expect Jason to come to earth practically right under Sickys Ray-Bans. Youd think it would be the last place Aringapu would want to turn up in, too. Youd think, above all, that the good Dr. Albert, skilled in providing wise counsel and comfort, would look out for Jasons interests and fly him out at once. Youd be wrong on all counts, particularly on the last! You might also expect, on this page, to find out how it all wraps up, but this place is meant to stimulate your appetite, not satiate it. All that can be said for now is that, in a curious and appropriate way, the punishment fits the crime.
