Jonathan continues to inspire young minds and old 48 years after first publication.
Jonathan Livingston Seagull made a huge impression on me as an adolescent in the late 70s. My attention focused on memoir now, I recalled Jonathan and his struggle for enlightenment and freedom. I couldn’t find my childhood favorite in my stash so I ordered the newest edition. To my delight, I discovered a Part Four and Last Words by the author added to the story!
I read Jonathan to my 13-year-old boys and they absorbed it with serious attention. “Wow, that’s deep” and lots of commentary along the way let me know it is just as powerful for my generation of kids as it was for me.
Reading as an older adult brought a whole new level of appreciation for Jonathan’s struggles and achievements. It also led me to purchase more stories by Richard Bach. An author of amazing talent with his own stories of flight I will never tire of reading.
