Laura E. Smith: "This is such a beautiful collection--not to mention a fascinating story. Barbara's life is equal parts inspiring and haunting. I am particularly fond of the letters to her fellow shipmates (the girl had guts!) and "ADR." Barbara had such a striking voice and is a modern figure in so many ways. She traveled all over the world by sea, traversed part of the Appalachian Trail, and published a novel at twelve. Stefan Cooke, the collection's editor, has such a gentle touch, offering introductions and explanations to Barbara's letters when necessary. I would recommend this to anyone who loves the outdoors or an intriguing, occasionally confounding story about a young girl searching for the best way to live." Tim: "Amazing book! Reading the letters from Barbara, especially the early ones, you really get a sense just what a genius she really was, which makes what happened all the more a tragedy. I hope this book, along with all the recent interest in Barbara's life help keep her work alive long after she left us. Stefan Cooke did a great job of letting Barbara come to us through her words, without editorializing or injecting his own armchair psychoanalysis. He just gives us well researched and nuanced context that helps us understand."
