In this book, Paul Stutzman takes a very personal look at his own path through life, beginning with his courtship of his wife and her death. His two most recent adventures, an attempt to paddle the entire length of the Mississippi River and a hike of the Camino de Santiago, the Catholic pilgrimage trail in Spain, take the spotlight as he recounts those journeys and reflects on the pilgrimages we all walk on this earth.
After a grueling trek spanning the entire Appalachian Trail, Stutzman traded his hiking boots for a bicycle to pedal across our country! Riding through cold, heat, loneliness, and exhaustion, he traversed 5,000 miles, meeting people whose lives form the fabric of this nation. A remarkable glimpse of a noble yet humble America! 224 pages, softcover from Revell.
After Paul Stutzman lost his wife to cancer, he sensed a tug on his heart—the call to a challenge, the call to pursue a dream. With a mixture of dread and determination, Paul left his job, traveled to Georgia, and took his first steps on the 2,176-mile Appalachian Trail. What he learned during the next four and a half months brought healing of his grief, bestowed a new freedom, and changed his life.
Johnny Miller grew up in an Old Order Amish family, but he often quipped that he was Out of Order Amish. His early and constant doubts about the Amish faith and lifestyle lead to a desperate choice; but even as he leaves his family and the life he’s known behind, he is not sure whether he’s headed for life and hope or destruction and damnation.
Johnny Miller was 23 when he died the first time. The truck hit him as he pedaled along a Texas road, biking across the country in an attempt to find– somehow, somewhere–a new life. His old life had vanished like a vapor. He thought he had lost everything on the day he lost his dear Annie. But he will lose far more before finally finding the way that leads to home, life, and peace.
