An extraordinary opportunity for most, the highly-regimented United States Military Academy was a life-changer for him.

Enduring culture shock and surviving rude awakenings harden the rigorous West Point Experience. And, Third World politics after West Point - because of West Point - tested it severely. The truth-is-stranger-than-fiction memoir has a simple proposition. Fly-or-die!PATH to FREEDOM: My Story of Perseverance describes what happened upon Taylors return to a government turned repressive, anti-American, and paranoid - overnight. The Soviet-leaning, Cold-War-era dictatorship feared regime change. Its power-hungry leaders obsessed about him being a spy for the United States. His was the impossible task of proving that he was not - or else!The historically-accurate book provides a unique prism through which to see the cultural trauma of emigration, the unique experience that is West Point, the personal side of Cold-War-era geopolitics, and the mayhem of Third World politics.

The view will be nostalgic for some, shocking to many, and enlightening for others. The nonfiction reads like a novel. Its subtly-threaded love story will enchant - at the very least.
