Richard Bach finishes fourth part of Jonathan Livingston Seagull while recovering from near fatal accident

Jan 22 2013

Richard Bach has returned to his famous inspirational novella "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" as he recovers from a near-fatal plane crash in Washington state.

The 76-year-old author told The Seattle Times that the book originally had four parts -- not the three that were published in 1970 in what became an international best-seller. After four months in a Seattle hospital with massive brain, chest and spine injuries, Bach finished the fourth part and sent it off to his publisher a few weeks ago.

In the new section, the flock struggles to find meaning. They first worship Jonathan, then write him off as a myth as years pass before his return.
