"A vibrant epic, this wondrous book is, at its core, a story of resilience. Marquis is industrious, and I recommend this book to all people seeking to discover the massive magnitude of their own potential power. A triumph!" -Aspen Matis, author of Girl in the Woods: A Memoir
"Destined to become a classic in the travel writing genre. The descriptions of time and place are just detailed enough to become animated with life, and the author's courage is inspiring." -Library Journal (starred review)
"Tough women explore the great outdoors alone: But while Strayed (author of Wild) is an amateur hiker, Marquis is a pro." -Entertainment Weekly
"Straightforward and forthright, this is adventure writing as it was meant to be." -Booklist

That said, it was a surprisingly slow read because I had trouble getting into it the first time around. The receipt I was using as a bookmark is from March 2016, stuck on page 112 until July 2018. I like to finish every book I start, so I picked it back up again, continuing instead of restarting it. I think it was so hard to get lost in at first because I couldn’t stop thinking about how reckless she was often being, instead of being inspired to go on my own adventure. However, when I did pick it back up again, I flew through it, the last 140 pages in 2 days. She’s a great story teller, even if the stories she tells makes my brother repeatedly tell me they must be fiction, and make me scratch my head at how crazy she is. But good for her!
I've restarted the book three times, thinking that on the first two my mood just wasn't conducive to the topic. But it's not that. It's that Sarah is a terrible author, annoyingly smug in her presentation of herself and clearly lacking a grasp of focus. The title really says it all: "Check how how awesome I am!" when I was expecting something along the lines of "Let me share my adventure with you." It's not surprising she mugs on TED talks and has the usual Gaia-focused attitude.
I suggest you stick with proper adventure books from real adventuresome people like "Will to Live" by Les Stroud, "Alone" by Adm. Byrd or even "The Meadow" by James Galvin. I wish I could get my money back.

Aside note: this is more a review of my experience. The writing is good, but I didn't feel like I connected in any way with the writer. And I am not actually sure what the point of this book is.
