This one was on my reading list for a while, and I’m so glad I finally read it. Braverman is a wonderful storyteller, writing of her time in Norway at a folk school, mushing dogs for tourists on a glacier in Alaska, and coming back to Norway to live and work for a time. Much of the book revolves around a need to prove herself—against the wilderness, against the men she encounters, and against the fear holding her back. It’s not terribly fast-paced, but it is certainly thought-provoking.
