Read by Richard Bach.
The most celebrated inspirational fable of our time is now available on CD, narrated by the author. Telling the story of a bird determined to be more than ordinary, 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull' is a story for people who want to follow their dreams and make their own rules. A bestselling modern classic, this book has inspired people for decades.
'Most gulls don't bother to learn more than the simplest facts of flight - how to get from shore to food and back again,' narrates author Richard Bach in this allegory about a unique bird named Jonathan Livingston Seaquil. '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 bestselling modern classic is a fable about seeking a higher purpose in life, even if your flock, tribe or neighbourhood finds your ambition threatening (at one point our beloved gull is even banished from his flock). By not compromising his higher vision, Jonathan learns the meaning of love and kindness and gets the ultimate payoff - transcendence.
Beautifully narrated by the author, this is a stirring tale that has inspired millions of people worldwide.
