Item Description...
The Only Road North is the true-life adventure of a 9,000-mile journey across Africa taken by author Erik Mirandette, his brother, and two friends. When the travelers fall victim to a terrorist attack, Erik must struggle through grief and darkness to find his way back to a life lived for God.

Publishers Description
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
picture of Africa  Apr 23, 2010
I found The Only Road North a good read but somewhat melodramatic. I thought at times the author was writting more for effect than for description. Having been in Tanzania and Uganda myself, I found his descriptions very accurate. At times it was a bit tedious but overall worth the effort
AMAZING STORY  Dec 7, 2009
After listening to Eric in person at the Air Force academy NCLS I wanted to hear more of the story. I went immediately and bought this book. It is an emotional roller coaster that made me re evaluate many of my ways and my thinking. This is definetly an exceptional story and one that everyone should read. What a courageous young man.
The Only Road North  Aug 25, 2009
The Only Road North is a book by Erik Mirandette. He was a young man in his second year in the Air Force Academy when he decided to feed some emptiness in his soul by taking a break in his formal education and serving for a year in Africa with a humanitarian organization.

Instead of satiating his appetite it awakened new passions in him. He found himself building friendships with marginalized people and risking his own freedom and safety to help meet their needs. A dream developed in Erik to experience Africa in an adventurous way- riding a dirt bike north from Cape Town, South Africa all the way to Egypt with his brother and a close friend. His book tells the story of a journey of faith that is far from over.

I devoured the book on my own trip up north. For me it was only a few hundred miles from home on a camping trip with my family. But in the shelter of my tent and the absence of the daily routine I found the time, made the time, to read Erik's haunting, African ride.

I was challenged by some of Erik's tough questions and observations- not of Africa or poverty or motorcycle missions, but of life, death, sacrifice, purpose and faith. He earned the right to ask them, though not willingly.

In his own words,

"If I had known three years ago that embracing my purpose [would cost me this] I would have never set foot on that plane. I would have never even thought about it. I would have without a second thought or hesitation thrown my destiny right out the window and preserved the comfortable life that I was so lucky to have. But I wasn't given that choice. My choice was to either follow and believe, or not."
Excellent read!  Apr 27, 2009
I was hooked from the start, very moving! I think that most people long for something else in their lives, and are not always sure what "it" is or how to find "it". This book shows that you need not know all of the answers, and Christianity is not a cookie cutter experience. Life is a journey and these young men certainly had a journey of a lifetime. I was saddened by Eric's loss of his brother, but Alex lived more fully than most people do during their much longer lives! A wonderful read!
Rock the World  Mar 25, 2009
I was inspired by the story. I want to change the world. This boy/man has been "disconnected from the matrix" that is the american christian lifestyle. After reading this story and other stuff, I feel disconnected too and afraid. Yet, I cannot go back to a life of emptyness of shopping for Gymboree clothes and watching the Today show. I miss Alex Mirandette. I did not know him - but I miss him still. I hope to raise sons like Erik and Alex. Thanks for telling your story, Erik.
