Editorial Reviews


A germ of an idea based on newspaper clippings that stayed in Cheek's subconscious for almost 60 years. A soldier engaged in the Pacific theater of jungle warfare during the 1940s. At that time the Roseburg VA hospital was a psychiatric facility with bars on the windows and lock-down wards. Cheek was but 16 when the story took place, he says, "So if my protagonist appears more heroic than the one who actually inspired this tale, it is the way I wanted to see him,; It is a story with a message, there ever a solution to the mental scars of war? --Bill Duncan - News Review Roseburg OR

"Wow! What an incredible story and what a masterful storyteller." -- --Jack McNeel - Montana Senior News/Idaho Senior Independent

I was fascinated to read a passage in your latest book about the soldier aboard the King John as it chugged around Cape nelson, engaging in a conversation with a reporter from The New York Times. That reporter was in fact my father, Barney Darnton, who as you undoubtedly know was killed during the bombing raid later that day. [email from John Darnton] --[email from John Darnton]

"I am a retired psychologist. I lived in Roseburg, Or from 1973 to 1985, working initially as a psychology intern and then as a psychologist in the psychiatric unit of the Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC) there . . . "I found The Dogged and the Damned to be coherent, and well organized. It is truly a compelling read, the kind you find yourself thinking about and eager to continue. The descriptions of the hospital and the surrounding forests in which it occurred are accurate enough to stir fond memories." --Ray T Moore PhD, BC Canada

About the Author

There are those who reject the idea that a person can acquire the writing art outside academia. Yet storytellers captured audiences for millenniums before Oxford and Harvard were more than forest enclaves where wild turnips sprout. Dissenters, on the other hand, hold the cloistered academic life to be poor training grounds for the kinds of riveting stories audiences wish to hear or read. Roland Cheek's particular PhD came form God's own university of wild places and wilder things. His doctoral thesis came during three decades of narratives about that wild place and those wilder things; wonders saw, heard, smelled, tasted, and felt, crafted for Outdoor Life, Field & Stream, Sports Afield. His column was syndicated over two decades to 17 newspapers, and he hosted a radio show to 210,000 listeners airing on 75 stations across America. Then he turned to books: seven novels and six wildlife and adventure nonfiction titles, all self-published to great success, all flavored with real-life experiences.
