In the cloud-washed airspace between the cornfields of Illinois and blue infinity, a man puts his faith in the propeller of his biplane. For disillusioned writer and itinerant barnstormer Richard Bach, belief is as real as a full tank of gas and sparks firing in the cylinders...until he meets Donald Shimoda--former mechanic and self-described messiah who can make wrenches fly and Richard's imagination soar....

In Illusions, the unforgettable follow-up to his phenomenal bestseller Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Richard Bach takes to the air to discover the ageless truths that give our souls wings: that people don't need airplanes to soar...that even the darkest clouds have meaning once we lift ourselves above them... and that messiahs can be found in the unlikeliest places--like hay fields, one-traffic-light midwestern towns, and most of all, deep within ourselves.

  • What an experience!!!!

    By SallyIvo
    I could not put this book down. Now that I have finished reading it, I wish it had not ended. I know that I will be thinking about "sayings" in this book for years to come and will probably re-read it for the sheer pleasure of the experience.

  • Thank you 8th grade English teacher

    By Waffles 2-107
    In 8th grade my teacher would give me seperate reading assignments, since I had already read much of her reading list, and this was the first book she gave me. I loved it and to this day I'll always remember her as my favorite teacher for this reason alone. Read it!
