About the Author

Dick Jackson was born in the Oklahoma panhandle in 1949. He grew up on the Great Plains of Kansas, Oklahoma and west Texas. Dick spent his seventeenth birthday on a Greyhound bus traveling to Oklahoma City for his Marine Corps physical. He left the Marines in 1969, after being wounded in Vietnam. Dick attended college on the GI Bill, graduating from Texas A&I University with a B.S. degree in 1977, and from Idaho State University with an M.S. degree in 1979. He met his wife, Julie, while attending Idaho State, and together they have lived in Idaho, Nevada, Texas, Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona, Kansas and Missouri. Their abodes have varied from a five bedroom, tri-level in the suburbs of Denver to a 63 Chevy school bus parked in the forest of Arizona. During their adventures, Dick has worked at different times as a petroleum geologist, a mud logger, a carpenter, a newspaper editor, a college teacher, a freelance writer, a real estate agent and a sailing instructor. Dick earned his USCG Captain's License while teaching sailing. Dick and Julie have three children and five grandchildren. They presently live on a small farm in the Missouri Ozarks, where Dick works as a senior petroleum geologist.

Those of us that have never been to war cannot fathom the experiences of soldiers. This book wraps you in the horror of war, the loss of self and the ugliness of man, then lifts you back to the essence of humanity and the essence of God. I highly recommend this book! Dick Jackson writes in a style that pulls you on and won't let go. He is a terrific storyteller.

I just finished this book and believe it is a must read for everyone but especially for anyone that lived through the 60's. The story was "hard" but the read was spellbinding!

I could not put this book down! It showed the horrors of war in such a graphic way, I felt like I was actually in the jungle with him. His journey back to living life as a civilian was such a struggle, it made me wonder how any veterans manage to fit back in. It was well worth the read!
