Growing up, the author always knew she was an unusual child, a tomboy and loner who daydreamed about living in the wilderness. When she was ten years old her parents built a log cabin in the forest, which she explored with her rowdy but loveable dog, Rocky, and faithful horse, Sally. Those years sparked a fascination with the natural world, and a search for a place to belong. Her travels took her from the Adirondack Mountains to a remote island in Maine, and to the coast of Cape Cod, where she lived in a campground with her pet ferret, Riptide.
This is a story of growing up feeling different from the rest, and of solitary journeys that strengthened the author's faith in God and sense of self. It's a celebration of the special places that make us who we are, and of childhood dreams that come true in surprising ways.
