Publisher Comments:

In the cloud-washed airspace between the cornfields of Illinois and blue infinity, a man puts his faith in the propeller of his biplane. For disillusioned writer and itinerant barnstormer Richard Bach, belief is as real as a full tank of gas and sparks firing in the cylinders...until he meets Donald Shimoda--former mechanic and self-described messiah who can make wrenches fly and Richard's imagination soar....

In Illusions, the unforgettable follow-up to his phenomenal bestseller Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Richard Bach takes to the air to discover the ageless truths that give our souls wings: that people don't need airplanes to soar...that even the darkest clouds have meaning once we lift ourselves above them... and that messiahs can be found in the unlikeliest places--like hay fields, one-traffic-light midwestern towns, and most of all, deep within ourselves.

I read this missive when it came out in '77. At the time I was amazed Bach could put into words, concepts I and my friends were trying to understand. While reading I kept thinking, 'wow-wow-wow',we agreed,we talked late,we kept notes,we thot this book was the end of questions and now all we/I had to do was--go forth and emulate richard. If only we could get our hands on a copy of the 'handbook' we'd be set. Then the last page w/ it's "everything in this book may be wrong" put me back at the beginning. Most of my friends had given up on the concepts, especially we're our own messiah. Since the late '70's I've reread it at least 20 times and when the handbook came out I read it again. It will always be in my 10 best loved books. Read both and brush some of the intellectual rust off to see a different perspective on "why am I here?".
