Watch this cool movie. Other than the schlub at the end, it is a beautiful piece. https://vimeo.com/657495577

Exciting News (Good Reviews):



___2013_Vladimir_Bukalo_7399Bridge was raised in Buffalo, New York. This experience not only gave him a high threshold for pain, but it left him as a hopeless optimist. He went to Bowdoin College, where he graduated with an A.B. in History and Biology – but mostly he discovered his love for the state of Maine. After college, he worked several commercial fishing boats on both coasts, including on a processing ship in the Aleutians, a Maine lobsterboat, and on a longliner on the Grand Banks. He’s been fortunate enough to have gone on several life-changing outdoor adventures, which ranged from canoeing the Ohio River to a winter thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail and, lastly, to rowing the Erie Canal in a wooden Monhegan skiff.

Bridge received a Masters of Education from Lesley University and became a teacher. Over the course of his twenty years in the classroom, he was blessed to teach amazing students in the one room schoolhouse on Monhegan Island, ME, at Sidwell Friends School in Washington D.C., and at the Breakwater School in Portland. But in 2014, he took a leap of faith to follow his passion for writing to try and become a published writer. He lives on an island off the Maine coast with his wife, their two daughters, and a dog named Twilight. When he’s not writing, he’s taking people out for charters on his lobsterboat.

    Just finished reading your novel “Where Eagles Dare Not Perch” and I absolutely loved it! One of the best civil war books I have read in a long time. It will have a place in my heart and on my bookshelf forever. Really needs to be made into a movie as it really was of epic proportions. Bravo Sir!

    Just finished Where Eagles Dare not Perch. It was hard to read in a couple of places but too good not to finish. I appreciate that things were not described too graphically but there is no doubt about what happened. I’m originally from out west but have lived in NC for 30+ years. I love history and am still amazed at times how many “historical sites” there are everywhere you look. Thanks for your insights into the Civil War. I am a fan
