Annotation It's 1980 and Nancy is 28 years old, a young Catholic wife, living in a suburb of Detroit. Doing what she's been told has brought her academic honors, a dress-for-success career, and marriage to a man that everyone loves. Yet she feels trapped, wants more. She moves out of her brick house and heads west. In Boulder, Colorado, she meets Robb, an artist. Together they join the back-to-the-land movement. Her family condemns her. Her friends shake their heads. She vows to write down every detail so they will understand the importance of embracing radical simplicity and perhaps join her. This is a chronicle of survival skills and personal growth, an odyssey through the unexpected. We visit a little-examined period in Idaho history through the voice of Nancy's journal and letters, and stay with her until she lands in a small house on Second Street, a single mother in an Idaho town. Strong language.
