Leif was captured while serving in the Norwegian underground during the German occupation. As a child, growing up in Norway, Leif heard about his father 's exploits with the circus - and also about a lovely small town in the Rockies which reminded his dad of his home in Norway. But it wasn 't until many years later that Leif decided to come to that town, and learn why it had meant so much to his father.
