Two weeks prior to walking down the aisle to marry his high school sweetheart, and immediately after Catherine whispered in his ear that she was excited to spend the rest of her life with him and that he was her best friend, Jon offered the following quote to his betrothed, "You know, honey, that I am my own best friend."
Twenty-seven years later (best friend or not) Jon and Catherine remain happily married and are proud parents to identical twin sons (now young adults).
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.
Humor and downright crustiness add to the delight of reading this account of a man confronting middle-age life, as Westby gives consideration to his struggles with marriage, faith, and fatherhood.
This book is an enjoyable read for any individual who feels the urge to venture down a wilderness trail. This book is an important read for husbands and wives struggling with the relationships of marriage and parenthood.
