Was This the Foreword to Jack's Book?

For some years, now, I’ve been trying to find a book of photographs that Jack is said to have published. Librarians and booksellers have been unable to find a record of such a book. There is, however, a single typed page referencing such a book, Along the Way as Time Went By. No author’s name is given, but the following does appear:

It reads like the foreword to a book, explaining that “Each photograph is a moment in transit . . . for Jack Lord’s own record of memories.” In short, these are casual photographs that he took as he lived his life. “Come, look through my eyes, see what I saw and experience the adventure with me.” These photographs were not taken for purpose of publication.

The author of this page wrote, “You have only to look at these pictures to know that Jack Lord has seized life as it presented itself and that he savoured it. Study his eye and his heart. Look at the fleeting smile on the face of a child . . . A lone Maui cowboy poised on the crest of a hill, waiting for the dawn . . . These are his moments in transit. Enjoy them.”

We do not know who wrote this preface or even who wrote the book, but we can tell that he greatly admired Jack’s photography and what Jack revealed about himself in the way he captured life as he saw it.

I checked Google and Amazon to see if they had a book by this name, but neither did. The mystery continues.
