"There was a Master come unto the earth, born in the holy land of Indiana, raised in the mystical hills east of Fort Wayne."

So begins this enchanting, lighthearted mystical adventure story about two barnstorming vagabonds. Illusions springs from a huge What If: "... what if a Siddhartha or a Jesus came into our time, with power over the illusions of the world because he knew the reality behind them? And what if I could meet him in person, if he were flying a biplane, and landed in the same meadow with me? What would he say, what would he be like?"

Illusions is a thought-provoking dialogue between a guy named Richard and a guy named Donald Shimoda, a real Messiah who quit. It is an entertaining story of miracles on the flickering screen of this world -- a startling book about reality and the appearance of reality. It is also a look at the way many of us could live, and the way some of us do.

From the Inside Flap:

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.
