Dreams is a true story, based on a business trip Gordon took through the mountains with his young son, only 4 years old at the time. Gordon wasn’t sure if it was a good idea, but since his son would be able to visit “Grandma,” he really wanted to come along. He decided to let him come, and it turned out to be a wonderful experience. They both had a lot of fun. When they returned home, Gordon wrote the story and called it Dreams.
