Most enjoyable memoir of a young woman from California finding herself and deciphering what is home, friendship and love. That this story takes place in Norway, Alaska, Maine, and Wisconsin makes the setting unique but the message is universal and at times poetic.

There were moments when this book shined and chunks when I couldn't wait to get to the next chapter. This is more of a personal memoir than an adventure/travel or dogsled work. I respect Blair and the situations she has endured, but the writing at times (the weaving and blending of many trips and storylines) felt disjointed. This is not a Cheryl Strayed style story, but it is a unique personal journey that many will find enjoyable.
