ABOUT THE WEST TEXAS PILGRIMAGE

A Captivating Exploration of Mourning and West Texas.

Hunter’s friend Ty survived war in the Middle East only to succumb to cancer at home. On a quest with his college buddies and Ty’s father, Hunter journeys from South Texas into the mountains and desert of West Texas to bury his close friend. During this trek, they’ll drink, hunt, party, and encounter unexpected people and enthralling landscapes as Hunter deals with his grief, compounded by his struggle with depression and obsessive–compulsive disorder.

ABOUT M. M. WOLTHOFF

Matthew Martin Wolthoff lives in McAllen, Texas with his wife, Lucy Ann, and three children Hunter Ann, McCoy Martin, and Kerr Dunkin. He grew up in a military family, living all over the world until finding home in south Texas where he went to high school in San Antonio.   He is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy and has a masters in business administration from the University of Texas-San Antonio.  His parents instilled a passion for reading and writing in him early in life that grows stronger every day. An avid outdoorsman, he finds his inspiration, and peace of mind, in the shallow waters of the Lower Laguna Madre and the wilderness of the south Texas brush country. His first west Texas pilgrimage was in 2010. It was a life changing event.
