9780330253550: ILLUSIONS: THE ADVENTURES OF A RELUCTANT MESSIAH

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.
