I am a fan of Pam Houston, in particular her first short story collection, Cowboys Are My Weakness. However, a series of essays about the adventures of a very outdoorsy woman read by a very indoorsy woman can only lead to trouble. In much the same way that a story that opens on a spaceship makes my eyes glaze over, a tale that begins on a white water rafting trip is a real slog for me. I definitely preferred the essays that lacked this adventurous component, but I am sure I am in the minority in this respect. Also, as much as I love dogs, I could have done without some of the dog-centricness in this collection. A dog more or less talks at one point, and that I can't abide.

Still, Houston's writing is skilled and clean. There are a few duds in here, but if you're the armchair adventurer type and enjoy reading about strong women and their occasional trouble with men, I'm sure you'd enjoy this.
