Matt Mason is the lead character in this "coming of age" story. It begins with the death of his mother and continues through his trek northward into war-torn Virginia in search of his father, a soldier with the army of Northern Virginia. The experiences of the trip, the challenges he faces day to day as he searches for his father, and the friendships he develops along the way make the book memorable and hard to put down once the story begins. This is especially true in the developing relationship with the beautiful Ami-Ruth who provides a new dimension to his life as the conflict surrounding them threatens to consume them both.

“Journey to Gettysburg" is a first fiction-based-on fact book for Dr. Mark L. Hopkins, a former teacher of history and university president. Dr. Hopkins had twelve of his ancestors participate in the Battle of Gettysburg, four from the north and eight from the south. To venture onto the battlefield at Gettysburg is an excursion into his family history and the writing of the story of Matt Mason became a personal trek of his own.
