Five days later his editor, Robert Rivard, was part of a small search party that, nearly miraculously, tracked a trail of feathers that had leaked from Trues sleeping bag to find his body.

Trail of Feathers is the story of the search for True and of the quest to bring his killers to justice. It is also the story of another perplexing mystery: Why had True taken such a dangerous trip, into such a raw, uncivilized wilderness, alone and without sufficient safety preparations, in the first place? After an unhappy and unsettled youth, True was at the age of fifty finally settling down to a career and a wife he loved.

His first child was about to be born. What was he running from, or to?Rivards search for answers to these questions leads him deep into the Sierra Madre Occidental, one of Mexicos last true wildernesses, and deep into the secrets of Philip Trues past. It also leads him into his own past, and an acknowledgment of the ways in which his life and Trues mirrored each other. Suspenseful, atmospheric, and moving, Trail of Feathers is more than a true crime tale- its a classic tragedy about how the past reverberates destructively into the present — for individuals, for cultures, for nations.
