Trekking his late wife's ashes to five remote corners of wilderness, Gary Ferguson finds hope and healing in the open country. This tale of grief and recovery, read with sincerity by the author, paints vivid landscapes tightly woven with his emotions. Ferguson's pain is tangible, but so is the hope he feels in the quiet details of plant and animal life living around him.
Nobody describes outdoor life quite like Ferguson. His brilliant physical descriptions intertwine ecology, and past explorers with present policy and reflections. He takes notice of details and draws emotional connections.
Ferguson ends with a feeling of renewal, his wife at rest, a renewed ecological movement taking root even in urban areas, and new love bring him out of the shadow of grief, and into new land.

This was a great and inspiring story. The narrative was a little fragmented and hard to follow, though. It demanded attention to keep up with which story Ferguson was sharing at the moment, because he jumped between them quickly and with little warning: distant past, accident, anecdote, present.
