English | 2020| General Fiction/Classics| ePUB | 2.7 MB
Built airplane. Flew airplane. Crashed airplane. Met God. all set.
Jim Bruton knows life. His past is marked by relentless curiosity and remarkable achievement. He was an African wilderness guide, Emmy Award-winning wildlife film director, aviator, adventurer, inventor of the satellite videophone, NBC News Middle East war correspondent, a husband, and a father.
His passion – building and flying WWI-era aircraft – led him where he never imagined he’d go: a horrific crash that left him for dead. For one week, Jim Bruton hovered in the place that is not life and not death, a place he came to know as the In Between. He came back, and this is his report of what he has seen.
Bruton takes us along for a by turns hair-raising and ultimately triumphant story of his coming to grips with what has happened to him. As he heals, his experiences in the In Between become more and more pressing. They download into his mind like rushing movie stills. His life of action turns internal. He uses all he knows – from quantum physics and battlefield memories to scenes of childhood and familial love – for a new deeper understanding of what it means to live.
