Where the Birds Never Sing


Jack Sacco has paid his father and all those who have ever served this country the ultimate tribute. Where the Birds Never Sing is an honest, moving portrait of his father, an American soldier in World War II, who fought for everything that makes our nation great.


Thanks to men like Jack Sacco, Americans will never lack for stories of heroes. And thanks to men like his father, Joe, we'll never forget how heroes are made.


~ From the Foreword by Senator Bob Dole

Above the Treetops


A Magical Story of the Deep South


Above the Treetops is the true story of novelist William Faulkner’s heartwarming relationship with a young boy named Bobby Little, who grew up in Oxford, Mississippi.


The William Faulkner that Bobby came to know and love through the years is quite a different character than the one put forth in academic manuals about the author’s life.  Above the Treetops presents the real William Faulkner; the flesh and blood character who, despite all his eccentricities and weaknesses, was a kind, caring, and adventurous soul, especially as seen through the eyes of an admiring child.


This is not another tired treatise on Faulkner’s work as interpreted by those who never met the man. It is, instead, a true and magical story set in the deep South, revolving around one of the world’s most famous and yet most private people.

RebeccasReads recommends Where the Birds Never Sing as a riveting biography of the ordinary, sometimes hilarious and always hair-raising adventures of one young soldier, a boy who did the right thing, fought the good fight, and came home a man.

When I started reading Where the Birds Never Sing, I didn't realize I was in store for much more than a mere book about WWII; I was in for a life-altering experience. 


This book is on my top 5 list and has made its way into the personal library which I am compiling for my children to be able to enjoy one day. 


They’ll find amusement in the Harry Potter novels and maybe even learn something from the classics of Dickens and Shakespeare, but they will experience an astonishing true adventure when the time comes for them to pick up Where the Birds Never Sing and will have their entire perception of the world changed.
