Welcome to the 2014 Website of Dick and Peggy Toliver!
We are delighted to have you visit our website to learn about our two published books. Please note that it is OUR website because my wife, Peggy, had a significant part in the completion of both books. She patiently read, critiqued, and edited every chapter of each book, sometimes repeatedly, to ensure I stayed on point. Her contribution has been priceless. Peggy has also been my confidant, partner, and supporter of my book ministry since the publication of my first book.
After an incredible journey, including fifty-two years of marriage, a twenty-six year Air Force career, successfully raising a family, and twenty-five years of post-retirement living, we are privileged to share some of our life’s experiences. These lessons are reflected in synopses of An Uncaged Eagle and WOMAN – A Godly Creation later on in the website.
These books were written to inspire and motivate you, our readers, to seek the freedom we have been blessed to find – the freedom to create, dream, forgive, love unconditionally, and to pursue the life our Great Creator meant for us to have. We trust you will be excited and inspired enough to order the books to get the rest of the stories.

An Uncaged Eagle is an historical and inspirational memoir that focuses on victory over adversity – the path to True Freedom. The book presents a powerful message of hope for anyone who has encountered great difficulties, and it helps the reader deal with unresolved issues in his or her life.

The book can serve as a model of determination and perseverance regardless of the difficulties faced in one’s life. Ultimately, An Uncaged Eagle provides a roadmap for achieving forgiveness and restoration in the most difficult broken relationships.
