John Wilcox has recently released his memoir titled “The Life and Adventures of Mr. Wil” (published by Xlibris). Wilcox’ first publication offers snapshots of different phases of his life and will appeal to a broad audience for their universal themes of courage, resilience and family values.

In “The Life and Adventures of Mr. Wil,” readers will follow the author in his transition from a young boy from rural Arkansas to an American hero who served with valor and devotion in the Vietnam War. Wilcox, the witty and relatable narrator, guides readers alongside what he calls his “Tom Sawyer-like” antics through various places including his hometown, Vietnam and Yellowstone National Park.

“The Life and Adventures of Mr. Wil” was written mainly for Wilcox’s children and grandchildren, a family heirloom of sorts, but his stories have something to offer for every reader – inspiration, entertainment and maybe even nuggets of wisdom. The grit and humor that the author demonstrates in the midst of life’s vicissitudes captures quintessential Americana.
