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.
