Brian Sheetz, a native of western Maryland with a passion for classical literature currently residing in Cumberland to be near his family, has completed his book “Pilgrimage of a Pugilist”: an engrossing story celebrating the strength of the human spirit.

“Pilgrimage of a Pugilist” is the story of a boxer named Hemi who experiences the throes of his violent sport. After being badly beaten in the ring and receiving a bad concussion, he suffers a long bout with post-concussion syndrome. The symptoms send his life spiraling downward both professionally and personally. The only thing he can think to do is return to the ring—against the wishes of his family.

However, the journey to recovery and returning to the ring are arduous and without much support. His only option becomes an eccentric young trainer who will help him, if he can recover. Hemi soon learns that his road to recovery and endeavor to get back in the ring is full of life lessons and growth. Hemi must decide the direction of his life, and the question becomes whether his decision will save him from the turmoil of his life or destroy him.

Pilgrimage of a Pugilist is a story on the human condition and the fact that all life will experience both triumph and tragedy. It is a story of both overcoming adversity and the inevitability of certain adversities that cannot be overcome. It delves into not only the life of the main character, but the people surrounding him. Pilgrimage of a Pugilist is a look into the human soul, both for its flaws and greatness.
