About the Author
Once called America’s most imaginative adventurer, Roman Dial is a pioneering outdoorsman based in Alaska, where he's made full-length traverses by foot, ski, pedal, and paddle of the Brooks and Alaska Ranges. He is a professor of mathematics and biology at Alaska Pacific University in Anchorage. The Adventurer’s Son—a best-selling memoir about the two-year search for his missing son—is published by William Morrow (2020).--This text refers to the paperback edition.
"The literature of wilderness exploration is as much about mortal risk as anything else. From Jack London to Jon Krakauer, adventure writing shows us how the rich rewards of interacting with thrillingly raw nature coexist with the simple fact that we tempt fate – and a lonely death – whenever we step from the safely beaten path into the wild. Underscoring this dangerous bargain, The Adventurer’s Son, takes its place among modern accounts of tragic adventure with hard-won wisdom and grace. ... Dial pays worthy tribute to his son with this deeply felt saga." (USA Today ("Best Books of 2020 So Far"))
"Riveting and devastating." (Chicago Tribune ("10 Books to Read in Winter 2020"))
"Gripping. ... A beautiful and tender book.” (Washington Post)
“The Adventurer’s Son is energized by spectacular descriptions of nature and by the narrative action of a father’s fight to find a beloved son. But it is its universality, this question of how to live and why, of how to understand nature, that gives it resonance and beauty."
(Christian Science Monitor (A Best Book of the Month))
“Roman Dial has written a brave and marvelous book. It’s a page-turner that will rip your heart out.” (JON KRAKAUER, author of Into the Wild)
"A brave, beautiful and eventually restorative book destined to become an adventure classic." (Anchorage Daily News)
"The best adventure writers are seekers, traversing not only physical terrain but their emotional depths. These stakes are raised to new heights by The Adventurer’s Son, a wrenching memoir by Alaskan explorer Roman Dial. ... Moving. ... A brave narrative." (Rinker Buck, Wall Street Journal)
"Much more than a simple mystery. ... A moving portrait of an inspired young man and a firsthand account of a father’s desperate hunt for his missing son." (Men's Journal)
"Roman Dial is a pioneering legend of deep adventure. ... In this riveting account of a family's search for answers, Dial shares a thought-provoking investigation of what it means to embrace life's wild adventures." (Adventure Journal (Recommended Reading)) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
