Overview

Those AK-47 toting little men should have remained back in the Mekong Delta where Ron Oriel left them over two years ago. But like the shrapnel he still carries around in his left leg, too deeply embedded for doctors to remove, the war seems forever lodged in his mind. Even the peaceful setting of a forested backyard, he discovers at his garden wedding, contains the right ingredients to incubate vivid memories of those days in the jungle.

Divorced and unemployed, Oriel finds himself on the edge of a bridge staring into the abyss. In Vietnam, he nightly dreamed about that Silver Bird delivering him home alive and in one piece. What went wrong?

This is a book about a young combat soldier's ill-received return home from Vietnam in the late sixties - at surface. But it's really the Wizard of Oz, The Sequel. Ron Oriel, like Dorthy is swept away to a strange land inhabited by odd little people and all Ron Oriel wants to do is go home, but a long dangerous journey through this land necessarily preceeds his return home. Worse yet, when he finally gets back home, he doesn't 'Come Home.' The journey to get back home has just begun. This is a phychological war story rift with Wizard of Oz analogy - much of such hidden for you to find. Great read!
