John Henry Hanks, a military veteran of the Vietnam War at the age of nineteen and a retired horseman who became involved in harness racing, Quarter horses, and rodeo, has completed his new book “The Western Trail”, a touching narrative of a man’s experiences as a soldier, a wanderer, and a seeker who embarks on a journey to change the course of his life.

Author Hanks depicts a flow of riveting moments of courage and determination to surpass the odds and succeed: “I knew now that I had made it to the other side of the country. The Pacific was before me in all her glory. I was a little taken aback. I had expected a more defining glory. I took it all in, urged my horses towards the water. I had to kick my horses into the water, let the wave surround them. I jumped down into the water, washed myself in the Pacific Ocean. Now one might think this is it, washing in the waters of the ocean. I knew better, I wanted to taste it. Who knew if I would ever see it again. I kicked free of Red and lazed around in the water, splashing the horses, and laughing my laugh. It was a good feeling, to be free of no bounds. Now if I had a maiden to share with me, that
would have been good too. I did not and did not regret it too much.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, John Henry Hanks’s inspiriting tale is the first of a trilogy about a man’s powerful journey to set in stone his feats against the raging and tumultuous events in life.
