Inhaltsangabe: Little about Conrad Taylor's upbringing in a remote mining town in Guyana, South America, prepared him for West Point - at the height of the Vietnam War. An extraordinary opportunity for most, the highly-regimented United States Military Academy was a life-changer for him. Enduring culture shock and surviving rude awakenings hardened the rigorous West Point Experience. And, Third World politics after West Point - because of West Point - tested it severely. The truth-is-stranger-than-fiction memoir has a simple proposition. Fly-or-die!
 
Award-winning "PATH to FREEDOM: My Story of Perseverance" describes what happened upon Taylor's return to a government turned repressive, anti-American, and paranoid - overnight. The Soviet-leaning, Cold-War-era dictatorship feared regime change. Its power-hungry leaders obsessed about him being a spy for the United States. His was the impossible task of proving that he was not - or else!
 
The historically-accurate book provides a unique prism through which to see the cultural trauma of emigration, the unique experience that is West Point, the personal side of Cold-War-era geopolitics, and the mayhem of Third World politics. The view will be nostalgic for some, shocking to many, and enlightening for others. Its subtly-threaded love story will enchant - at the very least.

The Smithsonian Institute selected the memoir for its Anacostia Museum Library as a reference on the history and culture of peoples of African descent in the Western Hemisphere. If you love nonfiction, which reads like a novel, "PATH to FREEDOM: My Story of Perseverance" is for you.

From the Author:

  • In The Smithsonian's Anacostia Library
  • 2014 Readers' Favorite International Book Award Winner 
  • Readers' Favorite 5 Star Recipient
  • B.R.A.G. MedallionTM Honoree
  • Royal Palm Literary Award Winner
  • Guyanese American Cultural Association of Central Florida Literary Honoree
My original publication plan for "PATH to FREEDOM: My Story of Perseverance" was to provide a digital book only. That changed when many readers, who had already bought the eBook Edition, asked for a print version. The Paperback is a response to the still-strong preference for traditional books. An expansion on the eBook, it covers the same time period.

"PATH to FREEDOM: My Story of Perseverance" is dedicated to my spouse, parents, kids, grand kids, siblings, in-laws, well-wishers everywhere, freedom-loving Guyanese, and the Long Gray Line of West Point - especially the United States Military Academy Class of 1973.

Buchbeschreibung Tcf Business Group, United States, 2011. Paperback. Buchzustand: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Little about Taylor s primitive upbringing, in a remote mining town in the Amazon jungle, prepared him for a first-of-a-kind scholarship to West Point.

It traverses between Guyana and the United States Military Academy - at the height of the Vietnam War. The narrative sums up rude awakenings, especially after West Point - because of West Point. Taylor offers up a ringside seat to a dictatorship obsessed about him being in cahoots with the United States. His was the impossible task of proving that he was not - or else!
