My name is Kevin Adkins.

The day I moved out of my dad’s house I was so excited—my life was finally beginning. Little did I know it would end in a needless tragedy. My dad could have let this story end sadly, but he didn’t.

This is our story.

Inspiration meets adventure in Barry’s book that chronicles the tragic death of his teenage son, Kevin, due to alcohol poisoning and his epic 1,400-mile journey from Arizona to Montana with Kevin’s ashes in his backpack.

With a sense of humor that is rare among parents who have lost a child, Barry’s book is a combination of humor, inspiration, adventure and tragedy. Yup, his book will make you laugh, cry, and inspire you to help Barry make “something very good” come from the death of his son. Every parent that reads Barry’s story will hug their precious children a little tighter.

Barry wrote this book with audiences of all ages in mind. In movie terms it is rated “G.”
