The Only Road North by Erik Mirandette is a story of brotherly love — between actual brothers and also between the Mirandettes and their fellow ‘brothers’ in need. Erik Mirandette was attending the Air Force Academy when he decided to take a two year break to focus on humanitarian efforts in Morocco. After being instrumental in bringing food and medicine to refugees in that country, he decided to take one last trek through Africa beginning in South Africa and working his way north to Cairo. His brother Alex, along with two friends, Kris and Mike, were in on the once-in-a-lifetime trip. After getting through numerous dangers and threats along the way, terror strikes them in Cairo when a suicide bomber attacks. Will Erik keep his faith and trust in God, even when the unthinkable happens?

This was a moving and sad story, but it was also full of hope. Thanks, Joy, for introducing it to me!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310274354, Paperback)

dangerous trek across Africa ... a life-and-death struggle ... and a call to live a life with no holds barred. 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. Erik Mirandette was completing a two-year stint with a humanitarian organization in Morocco when, continuing his quest to live the life he was created to live, he set off on an unforgettable pilgrimage. Beginning in Cape Town, Erik, his brother, and his two best friends covered 9,000 miles north by dirt bike, experiencing the poverty, beauty, and dangers of the African continent. Then in Cairo, having safely reached the end of their perilous journey, a terrorist's bomb ripped Erik's world and faith apart. The four travelers were now desperately wounded and on the brink of death. Erik's struggle along his journey of faith is as gripping as his trek across Africa. The Only Road North takes readers to corners of the world and depths of the human heart they will never forget.
