From Exile to Freedom By Michael Lee Johnson
The Lost American: From Exile to Freedom is about one man’s journey into exile over the Vietnam War many years ago, his struggle, his survival, his road to recovery and strength manifesting itself through his prose and poems. Many of the poems have been revised and evolved after returning to the United States. Many are new and reflect life after exile. The old poems came off yellowed edged papers, and wrinkled napkins. His imagery is stunning. Mr. Michael Lee Johnson lives with his best friend, Nikki, the cat, and is content to be living in a small suburb of Chicago, Itasca, Illinos. This is a raising star in poetry in the state of Illinois.

BEHIND THE SCENES: WHAT I ENCOURAGE!
We encourage both young and old writers. Michael Lee Johnson literally dragged his poems around on his back for 10 year in exile, often without a home. After 35 years his poetry is now hitting the poetry market place and he is 60 years old. We especially encourage American and Canadian works, since these geographic areas represent our homelands. Other works, in English will be review with care. We all need to leave some type of "LEGACY" behind our life journey, no matter how small, long or short that journey is. This journey is a journal about the distance we travel, and the works we leave behind.
Michael Lee Johnson, Editor
