Overview

A Journey of the Heart is a 47,000 word non-fiction journal in the American literary tradition of philosophical travelogues. Harry’s journey across America in 1986 with his grown son opens a dialogue as wide as the Midwestern plains. The two generations, born from vastly different Americas, can never be reconciled, but they can understand each other. And in frank dialogue, Harry, his marriage failing, confronts his past, and his assumptions about what the rest of his life holds.

Eclectic Book Reviews
Go West Old Man is a touching story of a man's journey across the country with his son. It outlines the struggles and joys of the relationship between child and parent, and speaks to every one of us. I found it to be full of honesty and much soul-searching. How wonderful it would be if every parent had at least one such pilgrimage with their child! I was impressed by this man's courage, and willingness to open himself to a deeper relationship with his son.
