When I met her she was already a very experienced outdoorswoman who was as comfortable alone for days in the wilderness as she was in her cozy home surrounded by family and friends.
Being out "There" - as Ellen puts it - is, for her, clearly as much spiritual "exercise" as it is physical.
"Read and Run" gives us a chance to go along with Ellen on her earliest adventures and "see" how she has become so authentically connected to the greatness of Nature and the wonder of life.
Knowing Ellen as she is today one could imagine that she was "born" backpacking, or climbing a mountain, or literally running around an island in the South Pacific as others of us circled it on a scooter - but her first book allows us to understand more of how she has come to be the Ellen of today.
Ellen is rarely without a tiny notebook in her pocket and takes "notes on life" that are now becoming books we can all enjoy.
Her first book evolved from those early notes.
It is as lighthearted and fun as it is spiritual and insightful.
I look forward to the volumes yet to come.
I also loved all the quotes, the stories about people she met on the trail and the family and friends in her life, and the fun surprises throughout the book.
Great job. I'm really looking forward to her next book!
