Little Hawk Obit: Amos Jessup - 14 March 2019 (74* d) RE: Obit: Amos Jessup - 14 March 2019 15 Mar 19


I can well appreciate that Amos did not fear death. He was a man with a lot of spiritual insight and a lot of depth of character. One thing I'm glad I did was that some years ago I ordered a copy of his book "Beyond the Cascade". It's a wonderfully imaginative story with much to say about that great big subject: "the meaning of life". I've read it twice now, and will probably read it again. Amos is amusingly described in the blurb about the author as: "A. H. Jessup is an American writer, engineer, pastor and general dogsbody from North Carolina. He has worked as a systems engineer, a sea captain, a commercial diver, a truck driver, a pastor, a miner, a lecturer and once sold encyclopedias. He lives in Hillsborough, near the River Eno, with the girl of his dreams, a handsome son, and the perfect dog."

Marvelous! I trust those were his own words. (smile) It's such a wonderful book, and I totally recommend it to anyone who wants to read an intriguing adventure story combined with a fascinating and very idealistic look at what life may really be about.

Amos remains vividly alive as far as I'm concerned. He is an unforgettable character, a great musician, a great writer, a great man.
