Finding El Dorado -
By Mason Pratt
A Book Review by Wor. Bro. Frederic L. Milliken
First time author, Mason Pratt, brings to life a story of personal growth and
mentorship. Read about the world's best kept hidden and protected secrets. A
story written as a fiction novel, with underlying truths.
Could it be true that there is a path that would lead a person to an
unbelievable richness of growth and self-fulfillment as a member of a truly
gifted society? Join Drew as he seeks the answer to this profound question.
Don’t we all, or at least most of us, want to see good triumph over evil?
Isn’t there an inner self that seeks out the best for the individual and
humankind at the same time? The only requirement to activate that which lies
deep within us is to listen closely and quietly to where one is being nudged.
Is that God working within? Perhaps in many cases it is. But isn’t it possible
that those who dig deep inside themselves can activate forces that the more
superficial human cannot fathom?
If you had that little extra power, that higher ability coupled with a higher
calling, could you not steer humankind to the preservation and protection of
those working to make society a better place to live? At the same time would
you not want those who possess such powers to subscribe to a code of virtues,
ethics and morality?
And so starts the book Finding El Dorado with an ordinary man named
Drew Wyatt who has a burning desire to make a difference in this world we call
earth. That goodness which he has brought to the surface from the inner self
and displayed publicly is what makes Wyatt attractive to a group called “Strykers.”
The Strykers see in Wyatt a good man that they can make better.

The triple tau is within a
triangle and that is within a circle
Wyatt tells them:
“I know it sounds a little hokey, but I think we owe a duty to others to make
this a better place to live. Especially with the way the world is nowadays. I
would like to think I had higher ideals and that my “destiny” is somehow still
out there. I do try to help out. I have volunteered at different places, I
have given blood at the local Blood Bank and work with a local fraternal group in
town working with schools and people down on their luck, but nothing
The Strykers explain to Wyatt that:
"The name Stryker is new; we have gone under other names throughout history to
stay relatively anonymous. The group goes public for a while every several
hundred years or so for reasons I will explain later. However, to answer your
question directly, the group has had many names depending on the time of
history. We have been called in the last century Ghosts and Spirits when
something unexplained happened, in early America we were called Medicine men
and Shamans, in the middle ages we were called Magicians, Sorcerers, Wizards
and Witches, in ancient countries of Greece, Egypt and Norway we were Seers
and Soothsayers, in the ancient Middle East we were Oracles and Prophets, in
India and the Far East we were called Genies and Viziers. We have been called
Mages, Enchanters, Diviners, Conjurers, and Healers. The list goes on and on.”
“We are convinced that you have what it takes to join our order. You have the
empathy to contribute as well as the temperament to control the power and
responsibility to help society. Only one in thousand are considered and then
only a small portion of them are accepted into the order.” His face suddenly
became very serious, as he continued: "BUT…be aware that this group is
difficult to join, dangerous to operate in and is a lifetime commitment.”
And that is the beginning of a new life for Drew Wyatt. First he must be
interviewed, then initiated and finally he must complete 12 tasks to hone his
skills as a Stryker and prove that he understands how to use his new powers
correctly and wisely.
It is this story unfolding in which we see the development of an ordinary
human being into an extraordinary one. It is a path that leads him to
an unbelievable richness of growth and self-fulfillment?
It is also a captivating story that pushes the limits of scientific study and
breakthroughs. With the Blue Rose as their symbol Strykers are literally
enabled to change the world we live in. They cannot eliminate evil but they
can foster and guide the good so that there is order in the world not anarchy.
While this is a fiction book it is also one with a message. Freemasons will
instantly recognize the message that author Brother Mason Pratt is trying to
convey. It is exactly the virtues of Freemasonry that Strykers operate with
but unlike Freemasons, Strykers have a mission to be deeply involved in the
inner workings of society, to preserve and protect society so that it
continues onward and upward on its path.
This work can be a tremendous tool to explain how Freemasons think. For that
reason it is a great gift to those men deemed worthy of Masonic membership. It
is very difficult for most Freemasons to explain their Craft. Through the use
of fiction intertwined with philosophy and morality Pratt has written a book
that will give deep understanding as to the nature of fraternal virtues and
callings for all who read it. It is written for the Mason and the non Mason
As Pratt says about the Strker movement:
“Their direction is accomplished by forming new leaders using several ancient
arts and sciences that move their initiates past the petty struggles of money
and power. In this knowledge, Drew discovers a ‘worldwide’ unity of humanity
which is held together by these constructive ideals.”
I call Finding El Dorado the “Atlas Shrugged” of fraternal societies.
