"No. That's it. You don't get it. I have nothing. No family, no home, no one to miss me. I'm tired of this life anyway. Just do me a favor and do it now." The old man dropped his smirk and stared at the cowboy for a long spell. He got up, walked over to a shelf and took down a bottle Jesse hadn't noticed before. The old man walked over to him and poured some of it in the open spot on his head. "That's just plain sad, son," he said. "I finally met a man more pitiful than me." Getting lost is easy. Finding your way back home's the tricky part. The struggle for survival can get messy; and that's for those who care. Enter now into Jesse's reluctant journey of last resort, pressed onward by an unknown force driving him back to the very ground he'd cursed before leaving it one decade before. This brings him Maxwell Calkinmyer, a curious character thought to be an assassin, a partially shot-off ear by Crazy Mary, is shaken silly by a curmudgeon named Levon, and finally beaten and left for dead. Getting There, the first book in the All Roads Lead Home series, reveals Jesse's rich Scot-Wichita heritage as he treks up north to Wyoming in order to winter but not by choice; he'd flat run out of places to go that would take him. Along the way he travels back in time to his grandmother's tales spanning over eighty years to his roots in pre-Indian Territory. The All Roads Lead Home series chronicles the lives of several generations from early 1800's to present day.
