I offered a course on Serres Conjecture to a small group of graduate students in January, 1977 [at the University of California, Berkeley] one year after its solution by Quillen and Suslin. My course was taught very much in the spirit of a mathematical guided tour. Volunteering as the guide, I took upon myself the task of charting a route through all the beautiful mathematics surrounding the main problem to be treated- the guide then leads his audience through the route, on to the destination, pointing out the beautiful sceneries and historical landmarks along the way.
