AS THE BIRDS FLY – A novel by Bruce R. Hampson.
Born into a family of Litvaks, Lithuanian Jews, Reginald Emanuel, a young boy of 12 years old, living in Canada, commences his quintessential quest through life looking for truth
The doctors blamed dissociative fugue to explain his fantastical visits with his great grandfather who lived one hundred years before him, but Reginald knew it was time travel…and he has the proof.
This is not just one more incredible story about an astonishing human being doing predictable things. it is a simple commonplace narrative, about a human becoming. Seeking happiness, love, money and success, and experiencing rejection, failure and let-downs, like we all do, along the way.
Do we ever really discover who we are?
Is our only obligation in life to discover our destiny?
Is death to be feared more than living an inadequate life?

Born in Zambia, into a family of Litvaks, Bruce Hampson immigrated to Canada once his father saw a postcard of a Royal Canadian mountie and decided to start life afresh. His ancestors did exactly the same, running from the 19th century Lithuania looking for a better life in South Africa. Hunger for new experiences and hopping across continents seems to run in the family: a miner in Saskatchewan, a fireman in Zimbabwe, a minister and charismatic church leader in Alberta, a wine enthusiast, a successful businessman in Hong Kong, and a hotel owner in France, Bruce Hampson has done more than fits three lifetimes. Searching for roots, God, financial gains, happiness – all was part of the journey that seeks to answer the eternal question: who am I, what is the purpose of it all, is there a God’s plan, a hand of fate that moves us, or are we at the mercy of random events that play with our life. This thought is reflected in his debut novel that takes the reader across centuries and continents, from a 19th century Lithuanian village, to gold mines in South Africa and beyond.
Bruce Hampson, Alge, his wife and their miniature schnauzer Atilla live in Vancouver, Canada, and they still hop continents.
