DEDICATION & ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
Dedicated to the memory of my father, Wilber, who was far more than a road man. His innate goodness far outweighed his faults, however few.
To my wife, Sharon, for her honest criticism and unflagging support. I also want to thank the Palm Springs Writers Guild for their guidance and fellowship. I especially want to thank the members of my two weekly critique groups, who over the years have helped me to craft this novel and five others. They know who they are, and they have earned my everlasting gratitude.
My road calls me, lures me west, east, south and north:
Most roads lead men homewards.
My road leads me forth.
THE ROAD BEYOND THE DARK
THE FUNERAL STONES
THE FLAMINIGO EXPRESS
