If by writing my life story, I can keep some young person from starting a life of crime, it will be worth it.

Joe Walker worked doing farm work in his younger years but became a Masonry Contractor later in life. After being released from Leavenworth Prison in 1978 he became a license masonry contractor, licensed by the state of California and retired in 2003.

Describing his potent new work Walker says: “The title tells my life and can have a dual meaning both physical and spiritual. My many years of crime before I focused on the real purpose of life. It was important to me to be able to take care of my Mother the last ten years of her life.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Joe Walker's life, until the age of 42, was full of making wrong choices and reaping the hard consequences of those choices. He suffered brutal treatment and witnessed others receiving brutal treatment from the hand of authorities of a prison that had been ruled unconstitutional by the Federal Courts.

“When the law-abiding citizen drives by a state prison, does he ever wonder how many prisoners are hanging with the handcuffs, biting into their wrists, with their arms pulled out of their sockets, or lying on cold concrete floors, naked for days without end?” On the Long Road Home is a story of a man whose life was riddled by crime, but who rose, no matter how deep the pit he fell into. Let Joe Walker take readers by the hand and lead them to the right way. Let not his purpose be defeated, for as he said, “If by writing my life story, I can keep some young person from starting a life of crime, it will be worth it.”

Readers who wish to experience this engrossing work can purchase“On the Long Road Home” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
