Paul “Pablo” Baum, will share the tales of Hernando De Soto, as he pillaged his way across Missouri. Baum has shared his living History at Florida Mo, Clarence Cannon Dam and Audrain Co Walk Back in Time, Quincy, Ill., and beyond. Raised in Oklahoma, its dense Native American heritage inspired him to pursue a multicultural education and profession, majoring in Hispanic Linguistics in Oklahoma City University, the University of Mexico and the University of Puerto Rico. These international experiences affect his storytelling today with historically based tales that tell the adventures of the Spanish Conquistadors, the Native Taino’s of the Caribbean, The Trail of Tears, Tales of old Missouri, the Santa Fe Trail, the Old West, Black Jack Pershing of World War I, World War II and many others.

Retired from Missouri Military Academy in 2001, where he served as International Cadet Adviser, he now resides near Mexico with his wife, Consuelo, who is from Bogota, Columbia, and descendant of indigenous Chibcha culture of the Andes. They have two grown children, Glen, who is an Apache pilot for the U.S. Army, and Tica, who served 20 years with the U.S. Air Force.

This historic adventure will begin immediately after the supper where all Ladies are cordially invited. Just take Hwy 154 west approximately 7 miles then turn south on Blacktop E, 5 miles to South Fork Church on the right.
