Book Review: The Adventurer's Son by Roman Dial
This book was a pleasant, though melancholy surprise. I came across it by chance, and am always tempted to reach for books about adventurers doing things or going places I may never do or see myself. The Adventurer's Son was no ordinary travelogue, though. It tells the true story of Roman Dial and his family, in particular his son, Cody, who took on his father's love for exploration. It is no spoiler to say, this book deals with tremendous personal tragedy for the Dial family and must have been hard to write, though perhaps somewhat therapeutic as well. It was certainly hard to read. That being said, I am glad I did and it's a story I won't be quick to forget.
