"So I go to Vietnam and survive, somehow--Then I will write--somehow."
by Edited By Carolyn Barber-Long and Tom Dunning
A unique 6-year journal concerning a young man's journey toward adulthood and maturity that allows the author to deal with the prospect of war.
Contains quotes from great thinkers and writers of history as well as John's own poetry and several entries from Vietnam written in the final days before his death.
Includes journal entries from the most remote inhabited island in Fiji where John served as a Peace Corps volunteer.
We offer this book as John's contribution, not only to war literature, but also to the literature of humanity's dreams and aspirations with the hope that others may benefit from his short life story. The journal provides a reflective look at our own life decisions.
