Long Trail Home is a journey of self-discovery drawing wisdom from some of the world’s greatest spiritual, philosophical and literary traditions.  The tale follows young Matthew Masterson, who leaves a life of wealth and privilege and the demanding expectations of his father.  From youth to adulthood, Matthew must face challenges from within and without, driving him to answer the question: What path will I walk?


As you follow Matthew’s journey, you’ll meet Ben Goode, a weather-beaten ranch foreman of unexpected wisdom, who gently and patiently challenges men to confront their beliefs, the condition of their own hearts, and their judgments of other men.  And you’ll meet the mysterious Workman, a man seemingly unbound by time, as he tends the physical and spiritual wounds of a young man unsure of his own name or how he fell under Workman’s care. 


Though far from historical fiction, Long Trail Home is set against the backdrop of late 19th century America.  The story weeps across the country, from post-reconstruction Atlanta to the rapidly changing Southwest in an age that forces Matthew to confront the the horrors of slavery, the unintended consequences of war and greed, and shines a light on the path of new found purpose, hope, and compassion.  By observing Matthew’s journey, perhaps you too will find yourself wondering how you might travel the Long Trail Home.
