Item description for Walking the Point: Male Initiation and the Vietnam Experience by S. Paulson Daryl...
Many Vietnam veterans struggled upon returning to the United States. They wrestled with the psychic trauma of the war and felt isolated and out of place, rejected by their country.
Author Daryl Paulson, a Vietnam vet, experienced the same feelings of displacement and despair. But he eventually understood that the Vietnam experience was an initiatory one, complete with a call to adventure, an initiation, and a return home with a new identity as a hero, a veteran. In WALKING THE POINT, Paulson's healing journey provides a wise example for veterans of Vietnam and other wars, as well as their loved ones.

A Must Read For All Vietnam Veterans Jun 9, 2003
Daryl Paulson's book, "Walking The Point" is an amazing accounting of not just his personal experiences in Vietnam,but also a book that covers every aspect of what our Vietnam brothers faced, during the war and their fight to finally come home. It is an absolute must read for all Vietnam Veterans, male and female alike. While, deeply emotional, it contains some of the most compassionate language yet to be incorporated in any book of its kind. This is a book not just for the Vietnam Veteran. But, also for their loved ones and families. Once read, this book will stay in your heart forever and is a wonderful "Welcome Home" for all of our Vietnam Veterans.
