In 1993, the day after he graduated from college, Mark Peterson rode out from California's Central Valley accompanied by only his horse and a pack mule. He rode north toward Canada carrying no food or money, and a question: Is God really who he says he is?
Mark spent the next two and a half months riding over West Coast rivers, mountains, and rangelands, sleeping in hay barns, praying with strangers, and trading in self-reliance for trust as he watched God provide for his every need in the most unexpected ways.
