In 2006, life as Paul Stutzman had always known it came to an end. His wife, Mary, died of breast cancer in September of that year. A year later, driven by an almost desperate desire to make life “whole” again, he dismantled the one part of his life that was still familiar and resigned a long-term career to hike the Appalachian Trail from one end to another, all 2,176 miles of it. He took to the trail still carrying his grief and a ton of questions for God—burdens heavier than his backpack.
That hike and his new relationship with His Creator Father changed his life; or, rather, it became the foundation for building a new life. He recounted his pilgrimage in his book, Hiking Through: One man’s journey to peace and freedom on the Appalachian Trail.
Two years later, still the adventurer, Paul rode his bicycle from one end of the United States to the other, beginning on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State and ending in Key West, Florida. He wrote about that adventure in Biking Through: It’s about time.
Biking Through will be published in paperback in the spring of 2013 by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, and Paul will have a few dozen books to give away at that time. He’s agreed to let me post this as an invitation to you—if you want a free copy of the book, it’s yours, no fine print or strings attached.
If you aren’t familiar with Paul and his work, check out his website at www.paulstutzman.com. You’ll see there that he has launched another adventure in the last year: his first work of fiction, The Wanderers, a novel set in Amish Country where Paul has lived all of his life.
And please, if you want a free copy of Biking Through, don’t hesitate! Send Paul your name and mailing address. You will not be added to any mailing list, you will not be asked for a review, you will not be asked to buy anything or be solicited in any way. Paul’s simply looking for people who might enjoy reading the story of his bike ride. Just let him know you would like a free copy. They’ll be sent out in the spring, when the publisher has them ready.
Send your name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org and simply say, “I’d like a free copy of Biking Through.”
P.S. Do not use the contact form on the website. Send this request directly to Paul.
