Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Flight is the metaphor that brings meaning to this allegory about a unique bird named Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Ultimately the fable emphasizes the importance of seeking a higher purpose in life, even if one's flock, tribe, or neighborhood finds such ambition threatening. By not compromising his higher vision, Jonathan earns the ultimate reward of transcendence. Dreamy seagull photographs provide ideal illustrations for this spirituality classic.

Hay quien obedece sus propias reglas porque se sabe en lo cierto; quien experimenta un especial placer en hacer algo bien; quien adivina algo más que lo que sus ojos ven; quien prefiere volar a comprar y comer. Todos ellos harán amistad duradera con Juan Salvador Gaviota. Ésta es una extraordinaria fábula cuyo mensaje intemporal y universal ha calado hondo en varias generaciones de lectores.
