Creating a most unlikely hero, the army assigned Albert Costas, the youngest and lowest-ranking soldier in the Vietnam War, to run errands and do other menial tasks for the headquarters staff in Saigon. The transition to the real world, coming of age - difficult for any young man - becomes for Albert the unreal world of Army life in a combat zone. He sees the parade of bizarre and irrational behavior of men under stress and struggles to maintain his own grasp on reality. Unknown decision-makers hiding behind the code name Wigwam, add to the confusion, where all is upside down, inside out, and backwards. Sacrifice and achievement become twisted with tragic results.

About the Author:

            L. John Lawrence drew the authenticity for his first novel, Hello, Wigwam, from his own experience and observations as a Vietnam veteran and a career military man. Heenlisted in the Air Force immediately after high school and during the Vietnam War was commissioned while on active duty. As an officer he was assigned to the military space program, participating in ballistic missile testing, launches of spy satellites and other spacecraft, and support of NASA's Apollo Program.
            As NASA prepared for the first Space Shuttle flight, Lawrence was invited to join the team at Johnson Space Center, Houston. He was "Voice of Mission Control" for the 24 Shuttle flights preceding the Challenger accident. Between missions he managed media relations and public affairs activity for the Shuttle program and its astronauts. In the subsequent years he held several executive-level positions in the Shuttle and Space Station programs, both in Houston and at NASA Headquarters, Washington.
            Lawrence earned a Bachelor's Degree cum laude at Texas A&M University, a Masters Degree in Public Administration, and a Ph.D. in Behavior. He has authored innumerable articles and professional publications, and has won several awards for fiction. His second novel, The Beauty Rules, is now being tendered to publishers.

Five-Star Review By Sandy Appleyard for "Readers' Favorite"
     Hello, Wigwam by L. John Lawrence is a wonderfully told story. The author describes, via a combination of anecdotes, quotes, and edge-of-your-seat life-like accounts, what the boy sees, feels and learns. The reader gets the sense that the young man is wholesome, likeable, and will always try to do the right thing.
     Hello, Wigwam is an entertaining read and is recommended to those looking for an interesting, educational, humorous, and thought-provoking novel about a young boy who becomes a man.
