The Bridge Never Crossed
A Survivor's Search for Meaning

"The Bridge Never Crossed is the incredible story of George Burk's survival of a tragic plane crash, the unlikely series of events that saved his life, and his inspirational refusal to die. ...George has spent the balance of his life sharing what he has learned about work, leadership, faith, and the true meaning of 'quality of life'. He believes that angels walk among us. I believe that George is one of them."

Joe Howard, Fire Chief, Rowlett, Texas

"Your determination and professionalism are examples for all of us to follow.  You are commended for your many contributions to your community and your assistance to other burn survivors. This award is especially significant in that you are the first Marine Corps employee selected for this prestigious honor."

A. M. Gray, General, U. S. Marine Corps, Commandant of the Marine Corps

"....What would happen if your life was a living hell? Read this book. George Burk has been to hell. Sharing his experiences and putting into perspective the precious commodity called "life". George shows us that when there are two outs in the bottom of the ninth, the game is far from over."

Michael Kazyak, Dow Corning Corporate Security, Midland, Michigan

"Thank you George for sharing your journey with us. You do make a difference in people's lives....I know, because you've made a difference in mine."

Helen L. Campbell, Executive Director, State Firemen's & Fire Marshals' Association of Texas

"Reading this book will rekindle your emotions, enhance your perspective, and very possibly change your life."

Buck Riley, Basketball Coach, Adrian College.

"I thought I was going to be writing about a plane crash victim who had survived. Instead, I wrote about a survivor who had triumphed....Burk survived by reaching deep inside himself to a place he never knew existed, and finding an energy he never knew he had. It is a place he has tapped many times since the crash. With characteristic courage, enthusiasm and compassion, Burk shares his story, so that we may find our special place, too."

Deborah Weisberg, Reporter, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
