After serving in a scout/sniper platoon in Mosul, Tom Voss came home carrying invisible wounds of war - the memory of doing or witnessing things that went against his fundamental beliefs. This was not a physical injury that could heal with medication and time but a "moral injury" - a wound to the soul that eventually urged him toward suicide.
Desperate for relief from the pain and guilt that haunted him, Voss embarked on a 2,700-mile journey across America, walking with a fellow veteran from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to the Pacific Ocean. Readers walk with these men as they meet fellow veterans and Native American healers. At the end of their riveting journey, Voss realizes he is really just beginning his healing. He pursues meditation training and discovers sacred breathing techniques that shatter his understanding of war and himself, and move him from despair to hope. Voss's story will give inspiration to veterans, their friends and family, and survivors of all kinds.
