Summary
  • "Aware that her youth is slipping by, Mary Beth Baptiste decides to escape her lackluster, suburban life in coastal Massachusetts to pursue her lifelong dream of being a Rocky Mountain woodswoman. To the horror of her traditional, ethnic family, she divorces her husband of fifteen years, dusts off her wildlife biology degree, and flees to Moose, Wyoming for a job at Grand Teton National Park. In these rugged mountains, unexpected lessons from nature and wildlife guide her journey as she creates a new life for herself. Set against the dramatic backdrop and quirky culture of Jackson Hole, this beautifully written memoir is a thoughtful, often humorous account of a woman's bumbling quest for purpose, redemption, and love through wilderness adventure, solitude, and offbeat human connections."--
  • "A recent divorce from a marriage of fifteen years, Mary Elizabeth Baptiste makes the decision to fulfill a life goal to work at Grand Teton National Park. Finally settled in Moose, Wyoming, she begins life anew and attempts to reconcile her past with the wide future ahead of her"--
