Journey of the Dead

When Pat Garrett killed Billy the Kid, he had no idea what a terrible emotional price he would pay. Haunted by memories of Billy, Garrett wanders the New Mexico desert in a fruitless pursuit of peace. Deep in the same desert, an ancient Spanish alchemist searches for the fabled philosopher's stone.

The Wild West claimed many lives; it was Richard Connable's job to bury the dead. As the undertaker's wife, Lucy, tells of the bittersweet adventures that took them from the Barbary Coast to Will Bill Hickok's Kansas to the blizzards of Montana, she reflects on the tragedies that shaped their marriage and reveals the heart of a woman whose love can transcend death.
