From the Publisher
“Bilksi is undoubtedly enamored of the horses, a breed protected by law in Iceland for more than a thousand years, closely watching their actions and recounting their travels together with an almost mystical admiration. But she also closely observes her travel companions, these women with travails both everyday and extraordinary, whose adventures form the core of this rapturous travelogue.” —Booklist
“When you’ve got friendship, a must-see global destination, and wild horses, what more is there to ask for?” —Bustle
“Bilski weaves a narrative of horses and friendship in windswept Iceland in this transportive memoir. Those with adventurous spirits and healthy amounts of wanderlust will devour this charming memoir.” —Publishers Weekly

As someone who also loves the wild landscapes of Iceland, I was touched by how well Tory understands the nuances of the island. She captures to the peculiarities of the environment, the culture, the food, the horses and so much more - all with an attention to detail that signals that she is not a simple tourist.
In the last part of the memoir, Tory longs to know if she left her "imprint on the history of the land the way it ... left its imprint on (her)." I think, if nothing else, her book is proof enough that she has left her fingerprint on the psyche of the island.
