Hey! God, Was That You?

About The Book:  In Hey! God, Was That You? author Ron Gluck, bush pilot and international relations liaison, glances back in time anecdotally revisiting flying, language gems, and conversation slices occurring from 1963 to 2007 in Papua New Guinea; Cameroon, Washington, D.C.; and New York City. In this memoir, he narrates how he flew five thousand accident free hours mostly in single engine planes over uncharted mountainous terrain of Papua New Guinea and later in Cameroon; a safety he attributes to God's grace and to quality aircraft maintenance by fellow Jaars specialists. The incidents Gluck reveals are central to events that took place but were never scrutinized. Dismissed as coincidences at the time, these events were accepted just as ; how things worked out.   In his review, Gluck highlights the workings of God in his life as a pilot and life in general. Hey! God, Was That You? asks, is not the living God, maker of heaven and earth, still involved in weather, ideas, timing, and answering prayers?
About The Author:  Ron Gluck, a JAARS pilot, flew five thousand hours transporting linguists into remote areas of Papua New Guinea, and Cameroon between 1965 and 1981. At eighty-one, he reflects on more than forty-four years of unforgettable flight and international liaison coincidences. He and his wife, Ruth, live in Arlington, Virginia.
My Thoughts On The Book:  I enjoyed the book a great deal.  I got it while I was out for Christmas vacation and it was a nice read to sit down and read a short story or two at each sitting.  The fact that the stories could be read, put down, picked up, and read some more was what drew me to the book.  The problem was....once I started reading the stories I could not put the book down and was disappointed when I read the final page.   I could hardly stop reading it but on the other hand I did not want the book come to an end. I guess it was a good thing it rained throughout my vacation so I could sit and enjoy this book!
