This true story describes the unimaginable events at Ground Zero, he explains. It is a testament to how the mind and soul heal themselves and how the spirits of the honored dead guide them home.

In “Tara's Cross: The Magnificent Sighting” (published by iUniverse), G. J. Bachmann’s 2010 memoir, readers are given a look through the eyes of a New York City firefighter who was a survivor of the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Bachmann is breathing new life into the book in 2013 with a revitalized marketing campaign.

Bachmann, a firefighter from 10 House, was pulled from the rubble of the Twin Towers. He survived the terrorist attacks, but, somehow, his memory had been temporarily left behind. Working hard to recover his recollection of this monumental historical event, Bachmann takes readers through his recovery, as well as his story of recovery.

An excerpt from “Tara’s Cross”:

“I soldiered on after September 11, 2001 as best I could, but in my heart and gut I knew I had a story to tell. I kept close to my family, my word processor, and my therapy to heal my mind and body. I even took in a writing course. I made a science out of reading other September 11 survival stories, and realized I too had a calling.”

Bachmann says, “Tara’s Cross” is a true piece of hidden history now revealed to readers. “This true story describes the unimaginable events at Ground Zero,” he explains. “It is a testament to how the mind and soul heal themselves and how the spirits of the honored dead guide them home.”
