An outdoorsy friend is a big fan of Gretel Ehrlich, and I too admire her grit and wanderlust. On the other hand, I don't want to hear that she slept on pebbles in her friend's Japanese garden after suffering a miscarriage. Um, why?

Her firsthand accounts of traveling to Tierra Del Fuego and Spitsburgen were fresh, but I found the poetic prose overwritten.
