Badgers Burrow is a love story about courage and the awesome power of the human heart.   A page turner all the way from the origins of a deep and abiding love affair, through the trials and tribulations brought on by years of separation, and finally to an audacious rescue attempt. 


Ester is left behind while her true love, an airman named Rick, is deployed from Clark Air Base in the Philippines to an embattled hilltop in Laos.  The North Vietnamese Army overruns the site and takes Rick prisoner. The U.S., not knowing his fate, declares him missing in action.   Ester is pregnant and gives birth to their son a few months later.  While Rick struggles to survive the agony and despair of prison camp, Ester and their young son wait for him believing against all odds he is indeed alive and will someday return.   Rick’s determination to remain alive and one day return to Ester, along with Ester and their son’s refusal to give up hope, redefines the boundaries of love and devotion.

Much of that time was spent in the Philippines, Korea, China, Thailand, Mongolia, Vietnam and Hawaii.   Mr. Sayler’s many years of professional experience and thorough historical knowledge of the region make him ideally suited to write Badgers Burrow.  His writing style is fast moving, descriptive and hard hitting.  He weaves fiction into the fabric of historical fact in a way the reader can easily understand the story’s historical context.  This is his second novel.
