Category Archives: Coyote Jack/Drawing Meaning from Life and Vietnam: A Memoir

“You carry who you are into war . . . and out of war.”

Coyote Jack overlays a fascinating exposition of life and death in the most enigmatic of American conflicts with an individual’s struggle to free himself from the real enemy that stands ready to thwart a full and authentic life. Through Jack we live in sandbag bunkers, bathe out of wells, and dodge booby traps as he learns the privations and landmines of his personal life are as complex as the clashing cultures and divisive politics that created, and ended, the war in Vietnam.
