Non-Fiction Five Challenge

Erik Mirandette
Personal Rating: 5/5
Yearly Count: 41

Wow. What an incredible story. I am in awe of this young man's courage and determination. This is real. As real, as real can get.

Here's an except from the back of the book:

Deserts and jungles, rebels and missionaries, bullets and acts of bravery, heaven and hell on earth--these are all part of a young man's remarkable, true journey through thirteen African countries with his brother and two best friends.

...The Only Road North takes readers to corners of the world and depths of the human heart they will never forget.

Erik's story is about life, love, survival, adventure, passion and much, much more. My heart is one that has been touched. Read it and yours will be too.


  1. Wow, a perfect five. That's pretty awesome, especially considering the last two that you read. Good for you.

  2. Ohh, sounds intriguing. I'll have to add it to my wish list.

  3. Happy to see, Joy, that your string of bad luck with book choices has ended at just two. I'll have to check this one out.

  4. Kookie ~ I'm happy. It has been a bad year thus far regarding good reads for me. I don't think I'll be doing any more formal challenges.

    DebD ~ I wish you would. :)

    Sam ~ ONE GOOD TURN wasn't that bad. I rated it a 3/5 which is just okay by my rating scale. Now, Everyman...we're talking awful. Hope you decide to read this one.

  5. This one sounds like a winner. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I haven't heard of it before, but it's going on my wish list.

  6. Now that's a recommendation that will be hard to ignore. So I won't.

  11. Because of the Non-Fiction Five Challenge, I've read some incredible, interesting books. Then I read reviews like yours that make me want to read even more.

  12. Sherry ~ I can't wait to read your review.
