The parents of James Leininger were first puzzled and then disturbed when their two-year-old son began screaming out chilling phrases during recurrent nightmares, such as, "Plane on fire! Little man can't get out!" The centerpiece of a loving family of three, James was a happy, playful toddler who had only just begun stringing together sentences. Determined to understand what was happening to their son, Bruce and Andrea set off on a journey of discovery that was to rock them to their core. For the more they researched the arcane comments and fragmented details little James revealed, the more they were drawn inescapably to a shocking conclusion: that James was reliving the life of James Huston, a World War II fighter pilot who was killed in the battle for Iwo Jima-- over sixty years ago! Through painstaking research and conversations with war veterans and surviving members of James Huston's family, Bruce and Andrea were forced to confront their skepticism and reexamine their entire belief system. In the process, they not only managed to solve the mystery of their son's statements. They also uncovered revelations about James Huston's life and wartime experiences that could finally bring peace and healing to his loved ones, decades after his death. This book features stunning drawings from James Leininger illustrating his unshakable memories, photos that portray the eerie resemblance between young James and the adult James Huston, and a foreword from world-renowned past lives expert Carol Bowman. In SOUL SURVIVOR, readers will come to know and believe in the special child who harbors the soul of a man who died in 1945.

read the book
Well written documenting parent's quest to verify past life memories of son that started when he was 2 years old. Son had nightmares about his plane being shot down by the Japanese during WWII. Son named ship he served on, names of other pilots and many other details that could be and were verified. Very good read.

Very good book. A bit long on getting the reader to "know" the family and their traits. May have overdone that a bit! Very interesting story.

Fascinating subject. Strangely written
This is like a real suspense novel. You can't wait to find out all this little boy of 2 or 3 can actually remember about his WWII experiences. I will keep it in my library. The book was written by the mother and father of the child with the help of another writer. For anyone who reads it, however, it is really frustrating. Too much time writing about the mothers support group. Everything is dragged out. The story itself is hindered by the format and writing. The thing is you keep reading because the story is so fascinating. The actual quotes from mom and dad are very well written so I don't understand how or why the book was put together the way it was. Still worth reading. Truly amazing and fascinating. story.

It's wonderful. Unlike other accounts of children recalling past lives, this child was able to recall names and places and the ship his plane took off from. The parents weren't into metaphysical ideas but due to the child's torment with sleep and screaming and recalling dying in a fire on his plane, they were both moved to try to find solutions to this perplexing problem with their beloved child. They finally found out it was a past life he was recalling. The book is great. Written from the perspective of unaware people who come to the realization that something greatly out of the ordinary was occurring with their child and they had to think outside the conventional box to solve this problem. The book even has pictures of the child as he was in the previous life, pictures of his former colleagues, and his former family members. This is a great read. I enjoy reading past life accounts and this is the best I've read so far.
