Whether racing down the beach in Costa Rica on the back of a wild-at-heart horse, rappelling in the canyons of Utah, hiking alone in the foggy forests of Northern California, Janice demonstrates how to face fear and find our inner courage. She reveals how through travelling in solitude, we are forced to spend time getting to know who we really are through introspection, ultimately making a commitment to living the life of our dreams. Each chapter ends with excellent exercises, easily incorporated into our daily lives, allowing us to "flex the muscle of courage," building solitude and introspection into our daily lives.
Our modern, discomfort-averse society is contrasted to other cultures, which build tests of courage into ritualized rites of passage. She quotes a Chinese proverb, "The gem cannot be perfected without friction, nor man perfected without trials."
That is why this book is a must-read for all but is especially going on my gift list for my young adult children, so they may begin their journey sooner rather than later. - Robyn, Occupational Therapist
For me, I think back to the time back in the day when all four of my friends turkeyed out from a long planned trip to California. I decided to still go on my own. It turned out to be one of the best trips of my life! Without a schedule, I did what I wanted when I wanted to and had a great deal of time to sort out a lot of the things going on in my life at the time.
I highly recommend this book for anyone with a quest for adventure and finding more inner peace. Janice Holly Booth is a superb writer that keeps the reader involved in this very personal account of how her quest to experience new places and adventure truly changed her soul.
