Zeke is an author, freelance outdoor writer, and pastor. Zeke recently published two books designed to help give men & boys a vision of masculinity, and equip older men to initiate boys into manhood. The Wild Man is a fable Zeke wrote for his son to paint a picture of strong, faithful, courageous masculinity. Wild Mountain Tribe is a 14-week guidebook for men of all ages, helping fathers, sons, grandfathers, and other men & boys journey into the subject of masculinity. What makes a man a man?
