A fascinating book about a woman, Juliette, born into an upper middle class family in England, who studies veterinary science, and then decides that she wishes to wander around the world like a nomad. She travels with Afghan hounds. She meets up with gypsies and learns much from them. She becomes well versed in herbs and goes onto several books on the subject. I found it very enchanting and unlike anything I've read about before.
Non-fiction, Juliette talks about how to live a rewarding life as a nomad. I got distracted by other books and haven't finished it, but this woman spins fascinating tales of her true adventures ... lots of things we take for granted in our modern lives that might be worth knowing one day!
One of my top 10 favorite books of all time. A collage of life advice, practical solutions, herbal medicine, and traveler's tales. Juliette is an absolute delight, her good heart and wisdom shines through the pages.

Wonderful...we read this for a while and I am forever indebted to Juliette's views of life and home, travelling, herbs, animals. i memorized page 37's poem "Firewoods".

I had the good fortune to meet her at a book reading. She is an engaging woman full of wisdom, warmth, love and fascinating life experiences.
Listen: How many books am I going to read that tell me how to keep scorpions out of my bed?

I learned about finding water, dwellings, herbal medicine and other elements of the nomadic life.
