This book draws us into the life of the extraordinary scholar, Father Horacio de la Costa, SJ. It takes us into his adolescent journey of self-discovery, when he decided to become a priest. This sets him on the path to becoming a brilliant history teacher and writer, and in his spare time, even a builder of model ships. Nostalgic scenes of his times come to life in ink illustrations as well as a timeline with photos shared by the Archives of the Philippine Province of the Society of Jesus and the Ateneo University Archives. Illustrations by Fran Ng.
