    When I scrunched my body under the big roof, preparing myself to commit to pulling up and over the edge, I looked down at Doc, eighty feet below. It was a long way away. My two blond children danced in front of my eyes for a moment like fairies. Your children will be okay if their moth...

    I received a copy of this book from PenguinRandomHouse Canada for an honest review. I?m attracted to memoirs like this and since it was written by a fellow Canadian and a lot of it takes place near where I live I was even more intrigued. I have a hiker and kayaker in my family so kne...

    "Sometimes I felt like the only cure for whatever I had was to live in a cabin in the bush, alone with myself, where no one could influence my decisions, my lifestyle, what I ate, said, did, or felt. I was a chameleon; if I sat down beside a blue person I?d turn blue, beside a green ...

    *Please note, I won this book via Goodreads Giveaways* This was quite the story. It details Jan's life, highlighting her semi unstable childhood, growing up with a father who drinks too much, and a mother who followed him from place to place, because she didn't have another option. ...

    Jan has loved mountain climbing ever since she tried it for the first time. It was a way to escape her difficult home life. She realized she was good at this and got even better from climbing with others in the climbing community. When her boyfriend Dan is killed in an avalanche, sh...

    I received this book free through Goodreads. Loved it! I was hooked right from the start! The beginning of the book seemed like it was the life I had when I was a kid and the life I wanted to have after I left home but didn't have the guts to pursue since I went to university right aft...

    Won a copy of this. Always loved the mountains, but after reading this may never think of them the same. Mountain climbing a challenge many would never be up to. But with Jan Mountain Climbing not her only challenge. Sometimes not such great luck with the guys either. She was a very...

    I won a copy of this book on goodreads in exchange for an honest review. Memoirs are usually not my thing. This book had a nice flow and provided a insight to the lives of mountain climbers. Being from Toronto mountain climbing is not something I was exposed to. My only fault is the bo...

    A fresh, funny, engaging and relatable story that dares to hold the risks and challenges of mountaineering up against the risks and challenges of being a feminist while hopelessly romantic, or a mother while hungry for more than motherhood alone offers. This is a fantastically confiden...

    Mountains! This book is about the conquering of the mountains that you climb and the mountains that you face in your life. It was interesting to learn what is involved in living the life of people who only want to climb but it left me wanting more. This book was free from Goodreads. ...

    This book was good. If one is interested in memoirs and mountain climbing, then this is a book to consider adding to one's bookshelf. ...

    This is the second book I've read that came out of the Banff Centre's Mountain and Wilderness writing program, and I haven't been impressed with either of them. Redford's book is billed as a memoir but is probably more accurately an autobiography. It's in completely chronological order...

    *Please note, I won this book via Goodreads Giveaways* This was quite the story. It details Jan's life, highlighting her semi unstable childhood, growing up with a father who drinks too much, and a mother who followed him from place to place, because she didn't have another option. ...

    I received this book free through Goodreads. Loved it! I was hooked right from the start! The beginning of the book seemed like it was the life I had when I was a kid and the life I wanted to have after I left home but didn't have the guts to pursue since I went to university right aft...

    Won a copy of this. Always loved the mountains, but after reading this may never think of them the same. Mountain climbing a challenge many would never be up to. But with Jan Mountain Climbing not her only challenge. Sometimes not such great luck with the guys either. She was a very...

    This book was good. If one is interested in memoirs and mountain climbing, then this is a book to consider adding to one's bookshelf. ...

    This is the second book I've read that came out of the Banff Centre's Mountain and Wilderness writing program, and I haven't been impressed with either of them. Redford's book is billed as a memoir but is probably more accurately an autobiography. It's in completely chronological order...
