Alaska is a state three times the size of Texas and has a landscape like no other state in the U.S. The adventure of Alaska is there, waiting to be explored and savored.
But it is also 4,000 miles from Leroy and Esther Stoll’s home in Indiana. They won’t get to Alaska in their horse and buggy, and the driver they had planned on was unable to make the trip.
So they pieced together a chain of transportation on land and sea—each leg of the journey using public transportation instead of private vehicles.
And, finally, they were in America’s great frontier of Alaska!

Johnny Miller is home again, farming the land he loves in a quiet Amish community in Ohio.
But although he’s not physically wandering, he is still wondering. Wondering why he is restless. Wondering why he feels that some piece of his life is not yet in place. Wondering why, when he was medically “dead,” he was met by his wife, who told him his time to enter Heaven had not yet come—he was still needed on earth.
This third and final book of the “The Wanderers” series follows Johnny’s wandering to a place where he finally finds home.
Johnny’s journey to find home has been interrupted, and only a miracle has kept him alive to continue. But does he want to continue? Does he even want to be alive?
His life has been plunged into darkness. All hopes and dreams are gone and the only thing he is certain of is constant pain. Left with a mangled body, an unreliable mind, and a bitter spirit, he’s become someone his family barely recognizes. Johnny turns toward home, convinced if there is any light or hope, it is to be found there—but it’s a long walk back to the farm in Ohio.
Is there any light than can banish his darkness? How many times must he die before he can finally live? And if he finally does make it home—does anyone want him there?
