A tragedy begins. A husband and wife separate. He’s dying. She doesn’t know. She’s pregnant. He can’t return. Now he races against time–In the solitude of a mountain cabin. In a faraway mountain range. Trying to finish . . .

For his children–his captivating stories and memories, turned into practical, moral, and spiritual instructions, now their “guidebook to life.”

For his wife–his intimate words of great love and deep regret, now his journey of redemption, now her passage to forgiveness. Ultimately, he gives his final gift to her, to them, and now, to us all. The Legacy Letters.

From the Inside Flap

From Our Family to You . . .

“Out of the more than two hundred letters written by our father, our family eventually chose over forty for the publication of this particular book.  Our most difficult task was deciding not only which letters to leave in, but which  to take out, for many are wise as others are magical, many enlightening as others are haunting. Throughout the years, these life letters, love letters, and spiritual letters have instructed us, inspired us, and even helped define us. Many have become family favorites.  Others are personally intimate.  Some are magnificent.  And all are truly revealing.  His words, much like the songs he also left to us, are soulful, curious, provocative, tragic, passionate, and timeless. Through these letters, a man discovered his life.  In these letters, we found our father.  His final gift, to our mother and to us, changed our lives forever. Yet we know this gift cannot end with us.  Now this gift must be given to you, the reader, to find your own wisdom, inspiration, and hope within these Legacy Letters–and hopefully and somehow to be changed forever.”
