The essay is actually based on the true story of a young lieutenant during the Spanish-American War. The lieutenant, Andrew Summers Rowan, was sent to Cuba alone with an extremely important mission: As it turns out, Garcia was the leader of the Cuban insurgents.
Not knowing how to win over the insurgent, it was suggested that someone deliver a message to Garcia personally. Rowan was the individual suggested to deliver the important message. All President McKinley and his advisors knew was that Garcia was stationed somewhere in the Cuban mountains.
Rowan journeyed alone, took a boat to the coast and trekked through jungles, intent on his mission. Hubbard depicts Rowan as a model for all men, and on a global scale, for all of mankind. Despite his youth, and the uncertainties of traveling during wartime, Rowan knew the value of hard work and did not shirk from the task at hand.
