God designed men to live with risk, adventure, and danger.

But today’s man has no rites of passage, no elders, no map to manhood. He may physically be an adult, but still wonders, “Am I a man?”

When John Sowers twin daughters were born, he felt exposed, thinking manhood was out of reach. He needed direction. Following in the steps of ordinary men and the heroes of history, legend and myth, he uncovered a new and ancient road.

Walk with John on his personal quest to discover the “wild masculine” and to become all that God intended men to be. From a thrilling brush with Kodiak bears in Alaska, to a war hero who rescued his comrades in the Valley of Death, from mythic heroes of Tolkien, to the footsteps of the One, True Myth – as Jesus walked from village into the wilderness, and back again.

Stunningly written, this revolutionary book calls older men out of complacency and younger men out of confusion. It calls all men into the greater Story – into a life of sacrificial love, holy defiance, and clear purpose.
