After a lifetime of exploring on her own terms, the author calls this eclectic collection of stories her midlife crisis. And she's determined to pull you along with her.
It's curious how visiting unfamiliar places can illuminate just who we are and where we are from. Sometimes, it's better than looking in a mirror or walking about our hometown.
Embark, from an overnight at a South Carolina treehouse (albeit with spiders and snakes) to being held captive by a boatman haggling for extra Rupees. Or, accompany her as she wrestles a halibut off the Alaskan coast, wears bruises like medals after a stint on a dog sled team and ventures into narrow caves where a single wave could scatter hundreds of bats. And just keep still as she tries to avoid buying a cow at a cattle auction. With dry wit and deep insight, you'll be alternately entertained and pleasantly jolted.
