From the Publisher:

Cultural Writing. Biography and Memoir. For almost five years, Chamberlain lived at the remote Horsetheif Ranch in the redrock desert of southern Utah. This searingly honest and affecting memoir is an exploration of place--both harrowing and beautiful, and of the self in its context. In the spare company of horses, a dog, and the occasional human visitor, this book "transports us into the intimate, wild, challenging, and gorgeous world of a woman seeking solitude"--Annick Smith. What she discovers in this wilderness, is not story of loneliness, but of freedom. Chamberlain is an award-winning and widely anthologized poet who has also produced wildlife films for PBS television, and founded several ongoing programs for writers.
