This is written as several short stories, but all about the same woman and all in a loosely chronological trajectory. I really like that take on short stories--the effect is of having read a novel, but episodically, tangentially. Awesome.

I also like that the main character is a smart, fearless, outdoorsy woman, even if she doesn't seem that way at the beginning. Honestly, I may have enjoyed the book so much because of how it made me feel about my own life and connections to nature, not for any objectively literary reasons. But I think that's okay:)
