This well-written biographical account of Henry Friston flows with ease. While it chronicles this noble character and how his dreams for world travel eventually merge with military service, the story's compelling appeal stems from the way Michael Foreman chose to tell it — through the eyes of an aspiring reporter who sought the truth, persisted over time, experienced intergenerational friendship, and grew from its wisdom.
