JONATHAN LIVINGSTON SEAGULL – THE COMPLETE EDITION
Most gulls don't bother to learn more than the simplest facts of flight, how to get from shore to food and back again, writes author Richard Bach in this allegory about a unique bird named Jonathan Livingston Seagull. For most gulls it is not flying that matters, but eating. For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight. Flight is indeed the metaphor that makes this story soar. This classic is a fable about seeking a higher purpose in life, even if your flock, tribe or neighbourhood finds your ambition threatening.
