This is a biography of William H. Phelps, affectionately known by his family as Opa, and his extraordinary life story that took him from his native New York to Venezuela at the beginning of the twentieth century where he became a visionary entrepreneur and a renowned ornithologist. This book is about love and commitment. His love for Alicia draws him back to Venezuela, a country he had traveled to initially for another love—his passion for birds. During his journey, Opa had to develop his inner entrepreneurial talent, using all his physical and mental strength to provide for his family while striving to accumulate enough wealth to allow him to chase his other love—ornithology. In his journey, Opa became the first modern entrepreneur of his adoptive country. This is a fascinating tale of a family saga based on the early days of Venezuela.
