Praise for "In Search of Burningbush":

"Few authors write as passionately about the game of golf as Michael Konik. "In Search of Burningbush" communicates why the greatest sport in the world has touched so many lives so deeply, including mine."--Jack Nicklaus

"As the story of one man's quest to experience the ultimate in golf in Scotland despite all odds, it is an inspirational must-read for golf fanatics."--Ty M. Votaw, LPGA Commissioner

"Part travelogue, part inner discovery, part golf appreciation--overall, wholly enjoyable."--"Toronto Star"

"Traveling to Scotland with Konik and Naifeh offers a fine journey for all who have ever entertained thoughts of playing the game where it originated."--"Huntsville Times"

A deeply moving true-life tale of courage, wisdom, and friendship between two men united by their love of golf

Critically acclaimed "In Search of Burningbush" is a beautifully written true-life story of an unlikely friendship between two men with nothing in common except a consuming and abiding passion for the links. Michael, a successful young journalist, and Don, a middle-aged card dealer with brittle-bone disease, journey to Scotland in search of the mystical course Burningbush. As Don struggles with his physical challenges, Michael struggles to keep the game--and life--in perspective.
