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.

Praise

Washington Post Book World
"'Illusions' has certainly one of the requirements for a best-seller in the field of pop mysticism: that easiness which is both its charm and its danger." - Joseph McLellan 04/24/1977

New York Times
"...a lot of the things that are said in [Illusions] are the kind of sentences somebody might want to embroider on a sampler--or bake into a fortune cookie. Bach seems sincere..." - Richard R. Lingeman 04/01/1977

New York Times Book Review
"Ultimately, one's judgment of 'Illusions' will depend on one's taste for the fantastic. Some will think it heretical...Others will find it cloying and cute. Many readers may decide that it is a charming, light-hearted story with important insights...For whatever it may be worth, my reaction was underwhelming...I think I'll stick with St. Mark." - Andrew M. Greeley 04/10/1977
