Book Description:

September 14, 2011
"Nathaniel Hawthorne Flowers, eh?" said First Sergeant Wilford H. Buford. "That yer real name or one you picked up out there in fairyland Cally-forny?"
         
Over 650 Vietnam War novels have been published, mostly dark tales from the war zone. In Wild Blue Yonder, Airman Nathaniel Hawthorne Flowers goes not to Vietnam but Germany, straight into a military Catch-22. His assignment: writing stories for the Stars and Stripes newspaper which will never see print. Nate's adventure deepens as he and his fellow troops try to understand why they're there, the military mindset, and the massive social disruption roiling 1960s America. Existential, psychedelic, funny, and laced with rock 'n' roll, Wild Blue Yonder is the story of Nate's quest for personal and spiritual values while learning the meaning of family, friendship, and the love of the girl he left behind.
