This 2013 collection of essays was a fun read. Houston shares stories about her love of adventure, the outdoors, and dogs; and also a little about her struggles with mental health and body image. It's a look at what she was like a decade before she wrote Deep Creek; which is a favorite book for me.

A quirky insightful love story that animal lovers would especially appreciate!

I really liked this collection of short stories. Houston's writing was excellent. Her characters were very interesting and I just sort of liked them and really understood their thoughts and feelings.

This is not your usual memoir, but it is for the most part a fantastic book.
I am not the audience for whom this book was written. I am not a woman, I haven’t suffered any debilitating tragic event, I don’t share her views on most aspects of “climate change “ or her environmentalist alarm, nor do I stress if I am doing enough for and sacrificing enough to justify my actions on a whole host of fronts, But I have lived in Colorado- where the majority of the book takes place, for 45 years, and and I appreciate a talented writer, and I also love and get along with, and have more faith in animals than I do most people.
This book is phenomenal! It makes you see there is good in the world. The book is so good and so relatable and the author is so genuine I wanted to call her up and meet for a beer in the little town of Creede Colorado where is lives.
Do yourself a favor and read Deep Creek, you will feel better after you read it.
