The Road to Courage

by Roy Taylor

Set in the mid-20th century, The Road to Courage is narrated by a young boy as he journeys with his family to new and wild territory on the Alaskan frontier, a land where life’s priority is survival rather than comfort. This memoir sketches a portrait of his complex family—courageous, committed, flawed, and yet resilient—and through a series of terrifying adventures, traces the unbreakable bond between the timid narrator and his fearless, fun-loving brother. The family’s faith remains a central thread as the preschool brothers work beside their minister father to construct a log church in Valdez without power tools. Along the way, the reader is given a rare glimpse into life in Old Valdez, a town destroyed by the 1964 earthquake.
