Carry Me Home Hardcover – January 1, 1995. by John Delvecchio (Author). Carry Me Home completes a trilogy (the second novel, For the Sake of All Living Things, dealt with Cambodians and the Khmer Rouge) begun by The 13th Valley, and deals, much like James Jones' Some Came Running, with veterans trying to adapt to civilian life.
I know John Del Vecchio, he's a friend of my ex-girlfrind's mother and I met him on several occasions. I have read both of Del Vecchio's earlier books and looked forward to the release of Carry Me Home for a number of years. I certainly hope it is reprinted since I gave away my only copy. He was always such a nice guy to me and I bought this book because of several recomendations and because he's just a genuine, nice guy. I read the book and was blown away by his attention to detail and emotional weight. The book is an excellent story about the returning Vietnam vets and an inspiration to present day persons in all walks of life.
In this powerful and poignant epic, Del Vecchio transports the soldiers of the Viet Nam experience to their final battlefield-the home front. High Meadow Farm, in the fertile hill country of central Pennsylvania, would be their salvation. In Viet Nam they had fought side by side, brothers in arms. Now in the face of personal tragedy and bureaucratic deception, they would create a more enduring allegiance, an alliance of the spirit and the soil.
He’d dreamed again but was again unable to recall the dream. Scattered flickerings of city light came in through the narrow French doors. He looked at Linda ile that warmed him but which could not dispel his tension. Quietly he pulled back the sheet, rolled off the bed, fell into a crouch. He scanned the room, the French doors that led to the two-by-six-foot third-floor balcony, the transom light of the interior bedroom door. It was four o’clock in the morning.
John M. Del Vecchio graduated from Lafeyette College in 1969. He was drafted and sent to Vietnam in 1970, where he served as combat correspondent in the 101st Airborne Division (Airmobile). In 1971 he was awarded a Bronze Star for Heroism in Ground Combat. He is author of The 13th Valley, Darkness Falls, Carry Me Home, For the Sake of All Living Things, and other works. Books by John M. Del Vecchio. Mor. rivia About Carry Me Home.
Carry Me Home is the remarkable story of their struggle to find each other and themselves, a saga spanning fifteen years-fifteen years lost in a wilderness called America. In its scope, breadth, and brilliance, Carry Me Home is much more than a novel about Viet Nam and Viet Nam veterans. It is a testament to history and hope, to hometowns and homecomings, to love and loss, to faith and family. It is a novel about two decades in our collective lives and the cleansing of our spirit-an inspiring and unforgettable novel about America itself. Warriors Publishing Group, 18 февр.
