Dr. Robert H. Kimball's memoir, A Road Less Traveled: War, Education and Civil Rights, is based on a life that has been lived to the full and with a passion for aiding others across the globe in a diverse range of causes. Broken down into nineteen distinct but interconnected chapters, Kimball narrates numerous deeply moving experiences that shaped him as a proactive world citizen and as an advocate for change that walks the talk. This is a sweeping record that goes back as far as 1731, although the references to pre-20th century history focus on cyclical poverty, something Kimball experienced as one of twelve in a family that could not feed him. Stories and photographs covering Kimball's success almost from the second he left home, despite some serious setbacks, prove how radical a change Kimball made by virtue of his fortitude.
A Road Less Traveled: War, Education and Civil Rights by Dr. Robert H. Kimball is an armchair tour of modern American and world history from a narrator who was present at the time. Some are just horrible to read, such as the time he came across a man carrying a woman across the Mojave Desert and discovers the woman, a double amputee, had had her wheelchair stolen. Others will give a reader goosebumps, including the honorable conduct that Kimball displayed while risking his career and even imprisonment. He says, “I had decided in the Vietnam War never to follow illogical or unfair orders that would result in harm to other soldiers.” At the time, this was almost unheard of. His sacrifice extended well beyond his military days. He described gang activity at a school where he was in a position of authority, stating he was even threatened by a parent who was thought to carry a gun. Kimball has lived a remarkable life and what a blessing it is to have him share it with us!
