at the age of twenty-five he was pulled down from the wall trying to escape from the Gudalajara State Penitentiary...and that wasn't even the lowest point of his life. It was never easy for Richard Burns, from a troubled adolescence through years of incredible and dangerous adventures. The one constant in his life was the apparent truism that life is forgiving, and always offers another chance.

Smashwords book reviews by Walt Long

  • Secrecy, Democracy, and Fascism: Lessons from History on Sep. 28, 2010

    Julie Butler's intricate analysis of the connectivity of events - past and present - warrants a careful study. Her arduous essay is more passionate than pedantic, written as a sorrowful witness to the decay of her beloved country. She outlines the dangers of a nation divided not by ideology, but by a less-than-honest media controlled by the very international business community that controls more and more of our everyday lives. We're faced with the task of paying attention and understanding what's going on, or accepting the farcical explanations handed down by media hucksters posing as newsmen and political leaders.
  • No Stranger To Strange Lands: A Journey Through Strange Coincidences, Connective Thoughts, And Far Flung Places on Oct. 14, 2010

    Julie has produced a delightful - if sometimes whimsical, often disparaging, and always controversial - journey through time and space. For anyone who ever believed that maybe he (or she) was different, that maybe he (or she) had the power to see deeper and clearer, to believe that ideas and remedies exist in some shrouded universe if only we could understand them - this charming and insightful adventure is certain to create a bond. This is not a prototypical travelogue or a tiresome lecture, but a genuinely bright and light-hearted look at time, space, and the over-lapping of ideas. Julie as at once a guide, a historian, a philosopher, and a companion. Whether contemplating the ages-old Indian ruins of Colorado, or the timeless beaches and canyons of the south Pacific, she is able to switch gears easily and connect the eternal dots. Never are you stranded without food for thought. It's a rare commentator who can present her ideas not as opinion, but as part of the universal consciousness.
