    Richard Bach

   Richard Bach, a man with a knack for seeing the world for what it is--Illusions. Sorting out what is important from what is daily conditioning we receive from all sorts of sources in our daily lives. He is most known for his book "Jonathan Livingston Seagull". A book that is simple on the surface, yet as one contemplates what he is working with through this well designed metaphor of life one becomes intrigued with his talent and insights. 
     His respect for life is immense and all inclusive. Life is yours to choose, tap into your inner-self and realize you too have a sleeping messiah inside of you. All you need to do is awaken it and become what your true potential allows you to become. And remember, never be afraid of being who you are.


Jonathan Livingston Seagull "Most gulls don't bother to learn more than the simplest facts of flight--how to get from shore to food and back again," writes author Richard Bach in this allegory about a unique bird named Jonathan Livingston Seagull. "For most gulls it is not flying that matters, but eating. For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight." Flight is indeed the metaphor that makes the story soar. Ultimately this is a fable about the importance of seeking a higher purpose in life, even if your flock, tribe, or neighborhood finds your ambition threatening. (At one point our beloved gull is even banished from his flock.) By not compromising his higher vision, Jonathan gets the ultimate payoff: transcendence. Ultimately, he learns the meaning of love and kindness. The dreamy seagull photographs by Russell Munson provide just the right illustrations--although the overall packaging does seem a bit dated (keep in mind that it was first published in 1970). Nonetheless, this is a spirituality classic, and an especially engaging parable for adolescents. --Gail Hudson

Jonathan Livingston Seagull From the "New York Times" best-selling author of "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" comes a light-hearted, inspirational account of an encounter with a modern-day messiah. In "Illusions", Bach takes to the air to discover the ageless truths that make our souls fly, showing that people don't need airplanes to soar, and that messiahs can be found everywhere. --Ingram

Running from Safety: An Adventure of the Spirit The author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull attempts to soar again with this introspective journey into his psyche and childhood. He tells about how he recently met an angel as he was coming up a mountain after a successful but fairly boring paraglide. This angel offers Bach a ride and challenges him to keep a promise he made to himself as a child. The promise was to write a book filled with the secrets of life: "what to look out for, how to be happy, knowledge to save your life." Instead, Bach looks hard at his childhood, speaks directly to the child he was, and faces some truly serious and painful issues in his life.--Denise Perry Donavin
