    I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book I cannot imagine how difficult it was for Roman Dial to write this book, although I can see how it might be cathartic in some way In the age of social media, we tend to forget that there is a human element out there, and I thank the author for writing this book that not only highlights what had to be a harrowing experience, but also highlights the love a father has for his son and his family The grief was palpable through the pages I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book I cannot imagine how difficult it was for Roman Dial to write this book, although I can see how it might be cathartic in some way In the age of social media, we tend to forget that there is a human element out there, and I thank the author for writing this book that not only highlights what had to be a harrowing experience, but also highlights the love a father has for his son and his family The grief was palpable through the pages Anytime an author puts a personal and emotional story out there for the public to judge, it has to be difficult to see it picked apart and have their experiences questioned or being told that they could tell their story differently I think everyone should read the book and appreciate what the author has put together from his point of view, and appreciate that in an age where everyone hides behind a computer, there is a raw emotional story about familial love.read it, learn from it, and most of all app...

    I was a Goodreads winner and I wasn t sure about this book, the large print and dark blurry photos made it seem self published but after started I was quickly drawn into the story.Roman Dial gave his wife and children a wonderful life of adventure and travel It is little wonder his son Cody or as he preferred to be called Roman II was an adventurer as well As a solo backpacker in my 20s, mostly thru Asia, I could relate to young Roman and his need for adventure I know easy it is to jump off I was a Goodreads winner and I wasn t sure about this book, the large print and dark blurry photos made it seem self published but after started I was quickly drawn into the story.Roman Dial gave his wife and children a wonderful life of adventure and travel It is little wonder his son Cody or as he preferred to be called Roman II was an adventurer as well As a solo backpacker in my 20s, mostly thru Asia, I could relate to young Roman and his need for adventure I know easy it is to jump off the beaten path of other travelers, make some dicey decisions and in hindsight realize how lucky you are to have survived Of course being a woman solo makes you muchcautious about some things and going off trail in the wilderness in a dangerous country wouldn t have been an option I felt I had Of course you hear the reference to Into The Wild so you get an idea of how this story goes I was rooting for a diffe...
