This is the story of James Leininger, who---a little more than two weeks after his second birthday---began having blood-curdling nightmares that just would not stop. When James began screaming out recurring phrases like Plane on fire! Little man can't get out! the Leiningers finally admitted that they truly had to take notice. When details of planes and war tragedies no two-year-old boy could know continued---even in stark daylight---Bruce and Andrea Leininger began to realize that this was an incredible situation.

Soul Survivor is the story of how the Leiningers pieced together what their son was communicating and eventually discovered that he was reliving the past life of World War II fighter pilot James Huston. As Bruce Leininger struggled to understand what was happening to his son, he also uncovered details of James Huston's life---and death---as a pilot that will fascinate military buffs everywhere.

In Soul Survivor, we are taken for a gripping ride as the Leiningers' belief system is shaken to the core and both of these families come to know a little boy who, against all odds and even in the face of true skeptics, harbors the soul of this man who died long ago.

    " The curious tale of a 2-year-old's nightmares and their possible connection to a World War II fighter pilot lost in action made for enjoyable reading once the hired writer hit his stride about 40 pages in. That the married couple took the writing credit, giving their hired hand only a "with" credit, seems a small miscarriage of justice, because it is his third viewpoint and clarity about the family members that make this book readable. Whether you accept the family's reincarnation theory about their son does not really affect the book's value -- at least, it didn't for me. There is little direct corroboration of the things the boy is quoted as having said over the years, so whether this is an extraordinary and remarkable phenomenon, or just another fraud, is impossible to tell from this book alone. A reader may find himself wanting to slap one or the other family member upside the head at times. But their research into the pilots of one particular squadron yielded stories of these veterans of a 1945 battle that were, for me, more interesting even than that of the boy. And very touching, in some cases, including one particularly heart-wrenching episode that would never have come about without the boy's parents having done the intense research they were pursuing. Easy reading; unusual material; valuable memories from 1940s America; recommend. "

    " Reincarnation! Really. This book offers a compelling story of a young boy reliving the trauma of a past life (and death) as a WWII pilot. The implications of such experiences are quite profound and just another example, as Shakespeare's Hamlet said, "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,Than are dreamt of in your philosophy." "

    " This book is about my student, James. It is most intriguing, especially ok mowing his very reasonable parents. It really makes you think. "
