Debut author and air force veteran, Gaylan Wright, introduces us to his memoir, “Slave to the Dream: Forever in Pursuit”:
Just because you grow up and do bad things, doesn’t mean you were brought up that way. This book will appeal to readers who are interested in a story about overcoming desperation, achieving personal transformation and the wisdom gained from a life of trials and triumphs.
I enjoyed this memoir quite a bit. It was entertaining and there were a lot of stories from his time in the air force. That resonated with me because my dad was an air force reservist and I was in the Oregon Air Guard also.
The author’s years as a child were pretty rough and tumble having 11 siblings. There are many lessons to be learned in his story.
I appreciated the author’s candid confession that he made a lot of mistakes, we all do. He demonstrated growth as he sought to improve himself as a human being and a man.
I award “Slave to the Dream” a score of 3.3 stars. The score would have been a lot higher except for a large handful of spelling errors I found in the book.
