"Richard Bach...inspires us to find our passion and pursue it with the same child heart he shows each time he puts words on paper."--The State Journal-Register
"In 2012, Bach suffered a near-fatal crash in this craft...so the text overflows with...dramatic and other ironies, his characteristic effervescent...'you call down your angels, and somehow they see you through your storms'."--Kirkus Reviews
"Like many of Bach's previous works...an expression of love--love for flying, for an airplane, and the joy it brings."--AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association)
"Travels with Puff
is a "gentle-adventure" about spirit and the power of thought...You'll need to ride through the mechanical details of piloting a plane (just when you've had enough, Bach realizes it, too), but you'll be rewarded with a view of life from the cockpit, stunning photographs...and choice Bach-isms like: 'there's no disaster that can't become a blessing'
."--New Consciousness Review
"Bach's voice is at once exuberant and meditative, infusing these pages with vitality...Bach's explorations with Puff are a fresh and welcome contribution to the canon of great American travel literature. A piquant, contemplative offering from a writer who once again reminds readers that there's a wide and exciting world beyond the ordinary..."--Spirituality and Health Magazine
From the Inside Flap
In the tradition of John Steinbeck's Travels with Charley
, and his own bestseller Illusions
, Richard Bach's Travels with Puff
recounts his journey from Florida to Washington state in a small seaplane he christened "Puff." With the humor, wisdom and insight that could only come from one of the world's favorite writers, Travels with Puff challenges our ideas of fate and our futures and asks us how can we prepare for the emergencies in our own lives? Can we ever really be safe? And . . . is being safe always what we want?
