Larry’s fiction book The Plantation is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2021.


The obstacles in Larry A. Lee’s life opened his heart and mind to turn silences into words. A dream lived inside of him as a young boy. Wisdom through struggle and compassion, his self-educated imagination describes the tragic, comic, absurd, ironic, hopeful, and surreal moments of his life. Larry‘s book Out of the Field demonstrates how important it is to dream in one’s life, and he shows adversity unlocks one’s real strengths and values.


Larry wrote Out of the Field to inspire other lost boys and girls to envision another life beyond the conditions of their circumstances, so their futures will not vanish from their mind’s eye. By virtue of self-reflection, he broke free of the imprisonment of a black and white world, and the relentless discovery of Self bore the purity of wisdom through forgiveness. The truth is ugly and uncomfortable, but the future begins with the right choice. Formidable and in the distance, Larry presses forward into the unknown, and he hopes others will follow their dreams.



Heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time! I went to middle school with a Larry. It is amazing what you don’t know about people when you are that age and the amount of suffering they are going thru. Highly recommend this wonderful book, looking forward to more of Larry’s writings!


Absolutely amazing story! The battles that Larry faced starting as a small child through adulthood are beyond what 99% of the population has experienced. Larry overcame many obstacles to be part of an small family of fire professionals that manage large, complex incidents throughout the United States. Powerful book, shows what faith and determination can do.

Admittedly, I’m going to be a little biased over my father’s book. I always knew my father had a story to share and I am glad he is now able to share it with the world. In this you will discover the trials my father faced at such a young age and the fact that he endured and succeeded is an inspiration to any who reads his book.

‘Out of the Field’ is the story of Larry A. Lee’s life, through all his tragedies and triumphs. Larry’s voice comes through strong in his memoir as he recounts his many trying times growing up in Connecticut and throughout his life. This book is incredibly moving and was a joy to read. This book proves that you can overcome any obstacle and become the person you want to be. A great read that everyone will love.
