Go on an adventure! Read the book reviewers are saying put a lump in their throat from the first page, and tears in their eyes at the end. And took them with Chester as he almost got killed time after time, and met the most fascinating people.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book with 5 full stars, shining brightly! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Great read. Some thoughts and reminiscences from a well lived (and slightly worn) life!
I’m sincerely glad that I read this book! The first page left me with a lump in my throat. The final page left me (literally) with tears in my eyes...He is so compelling that by the time he is telling us about his father, mother, and grandfather’s hernia, I’m committed and genuinely care about them, and I found myself rooting for their success even though they have already been gone by the time the book was written...He also describes the ‘potato’, but not until you’re 66% through the book, and it is the absolute LAST thing that you could possibly imagine it to be...The book is genuine, it is honest, and it is him!...I will never watch 'The Tholian Web' again without thinking about an orbital rocket defense network, how many mirrors and how much gas it takes to make a laser, or the dangers of hidden rocks and waterfalls in a river again...And I appreciate that...

My Dear Sarah, The Reason For My Stories
Those of you who know me, or who have read my book, know that I came home one day from work, eager to tell my dear Sarah all about my day. But on opening the door, I did not hear her usual cheerful greeting. I went inside, and found my love sitting in her wheelchair, at the door to the bathroom. She told me she'd been waiting there for me for a while, got up, took a few steps toward me, and collapsed.
The loss of the love of my life not long after almost did me in. But writing, and my dear Sarah, wound up bringing me back to life. I hope you, too, find inspiration in the power of writing to heal. And even, in time, recover your own zest for the adventures life brings.
From Chester L. Richards
Hello, and happy to see you here! A little about what's behind these stories: Having retired from the world of aerospace engineering, I now spend time reading, inventing, listening to music, taking photographs and sharing them with friends. And writing stories. Often about people I've met as I've traveled to exotic places, learned about music, surfing, white water rafting, optics, photography. Every story is true. I hope you enjoy them.
