Overview

From the satire of the start through the severity of the finish, Warrior, Wayfarer resonates with the makings of a terrific novel: authentic and visceral, humorous and suspenseful, vivid and evocative.

Bob Miller has written an extraordinarily accurate account of the military during the latter stages of the Vietnam War. The main character, Press Patrick, is a well educated Army draftee. Full of contradictions, he is an atheist and a secret seeker. He is also brash, skeptical, self-indulgent, morally pliable, inquisitive, quick-witted, generous. Along the way to war he falls in love, battles superiors and subordinates, learns his craft as a combat engineer, and embarks on a spiritual journey. This book will make you lean forward with anticipation, sit back with laughter, slump down with sadness.

Editorial Reviews

COL William Ridgely AUS-Ret.
“Warrior, Wayfarer humanizes both the soldier and the war in a unique way. It’s a must read for anyone who lived during that tumultuous time.”
