The complete edition of a timeless classic, includes the recently rediscovered Part Four and ‘Last Words’ by Richard Bach.

Jonathan Livingston Seagull, the most celebrated inspirational fable of our time, tells the story of a bird determined to be more than ordinary.

JLS 1

‘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.

“The gull sees farthest who flies highest.”ᐧ

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.

JLS 5

The dreamy illustrations by Russell Munson provide just the right illustrations for this spirituality classic that has inspired thousands of readers to follow their own path in life and so fulfill their true potential.

Motivational reading for all of us.  Jonathon Livingston Seagull dedicates his life to becoming unique among seagulls. The first and only seagull who can dive from the highest  altitude and land without injury.

His family and fellow seagulls warn him against challenging the rules of seagull  conformity but he believes that there is more to his life than scavenging for fish scraps. 

Ultimately, a small band of young seagulls, impressed by his dedication and skill become his protogees.

The message to me and you, is that we should never be constrained by the beliefs of the rule books when our own minds can see inventions, scientific formulae and physical feats beyond their narrow  perceptions.

Our minds have capacity beyond the restraints of those who have written the rule books so never be told that you can’t do something;  You can do anything you apply your mind to.
