In The River’s Roar; In Search of a Man Who Has Lost His Way, author Jon Westby wrestles with both blistered feet and blistering self-criticism. Whether solo hiking the Superior Hiking Trail, paddling through Quetico Provincial Park, or humping a pack with friends through the Wind River Range and the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness, Westby’s detailed observations and appreciation of the natural beauty surrounding him is matched by his honest reflections of family and home.

This is a story of two babies, born gestationally immature, and their development into joyful, rambunctious, elementary-schoolers. It is a father’s story about his “miracle” premature sons who survived against all odds. His remarkable insights into what was happening —not only to his infant sons and his wife, but to himself and his relationships make this a very interesting book.
