I've been accused of being a rebel, but I'm not really. I simply answer the call of the wild that runs deep in my blood. I hear it every time I smell the musky scent of game and wet earth. I savor it over open fires and far-seeing places, and I dream of it on my bed at night when rain makes music on the roof and I begin planning the next adventure.
Wild is more than a physical, untamed place. It is an unrestrained soul soaring on the wings of the wind. It is a connection to the heart of Creator Redeemer ... a total immersion in a Father's love."
From a hospital room to the wilderness, set against the backdrop of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and linking those events with the deaths of Marin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy during the turbulent sixties era, Wild Woman is the journey of reconciling valued relationships and reaching for your dreams. It invites readers on a mental trip back through their own lives and challenges them to take a closer look at creation while offering an open door to fall into the arms of the One who created it.
"Wild answers to wild questions you were afraid to ask."
-John Wiuff, counselor and creator of the Lightbox Method

An incredible story of a Loving Heavenly Father using a time of pain to heal the souls deepest wounds.
"Daddy, do you see me? Do you love me?" Sandy Cathcart joins untold numbers of women whose hearts cry this plea. Women seeking their father's love. Sandy reviews her life as she takes us from her father's hospital bed to the wilderness, the place where she has always found her best answers. It is in the wilderness that she joins America in our search for sanity on September 11th. She reflects on the events of the 1960's that forever changed our nation. On a lighter note, Sandy's adventures will entice the thrill seeker and cause the more cautious to say, "Oh my," their eyes wide with marvel and disbelief. Sandy's story of seeking, finding and redemption is engaging and all that a good read should be. She caused me to laugh and cry and to keep turning the pages. Her struggles struck a personal chord, and I praise her honesty in sharing them. Whether their fathers were close to perfect or flawed, women will identify with Sandy's story. And men, read on-this is not just a woman's book! In time she found her security in Father God, Creator. Yet in the end, she also found her answers and closure at her father's deathbed. Yes, he loved her. Through the pain of his own seeking, he had always loved her. And now she reconciles with her mother. But that will be another story.
