This book is so wonderful. I took a looooooong time to read it because it was so thought-provoking and exquisitely written. You can leave it on your nightstand to read and savor when you have time. And, mark it up (mine is peppered with post-its and lightly penciled notes)! In sharing her story, Terry Tempest Williams invites one to think on a deeper level and to quietly examine one's own life journey as well as that of the natural world. I will keep this book forever. I have not loaned my copy to anyone, instead I have purchased it for friends to experience themselves.

I took this book to the beach with me and was mesmerized by the beautiful versing and how well woven the threads are that hold this book together. Terry Tempest Williams is a very insightful writer. I recommend this book to any woman seeking to find her voice and let it be heard.

A short book but full of poignant insight into the Clan of One Breasted Women. Even more than that, a glimpse of educated, indepentant Morman women strugling to remain true to their faith, their families and most importantly to themselves. Surprises start from the begining and make your heart ache along with Terry's longing to understand a mother who cannot answer. A Teton Valley, Idaho fan

I enjoyed the musings, even the commentaries. I learned quite a bit. The musings gave me much food for thought. I anticipate great discussion at book club.

I'm glad I ordered it. Got both hard copy and e-book. Good premis and well written.

it was highly recommended by people I respect and I attempted to return to it 3 times.Whatever I read, was nicely written,I found the protagonist story (I assume it was autobiographical), uninteresting,mildly insightful and the journey itself,as well as the narrative didn't hold my interest.

I could not even finish this book. I am an avid reader and found the book to be horrible.
