Review: Desert Sojourn: A Woman's Forty Days and Nights Alone

User Review  - Kwinder - Goodreads

To me this was the perfect follow up to Two Old Woman (please read that first). The contrast between survival in the artic vs. this story's initial layout for alone time - is drastic. Yet, the story ... Read full review

User Review  - Deborah - Goodreads

thought this would be good but it was too drawn out with no real message. The author could have died during her quest and would have been for no real reason. Not a fan of this book. I only finished it because I thought surely something would happen. Read full review

User Review  - Jen - Goodreads

I do have to admire anyone who spends 40 nites alone in the desert and then takes time to write about it. But I can't say there weren't times I wasn't annoyed with her thinking and decisions. Lessons ... Read full review

Review: Desert Sojourn: A Woman's Forty Days and Nights Alone

User Review  - Amber - Goodreads

It's a nice easy read, good for a mellow summer day. I would have prefered to hear more about the physical struggles she went through rather the diary-like entries full of her fears and memories. Her first few nights out there kept me pretty wide-eyed. Read full review

Review: Desert Sojourn: A Woman's Forty Days and Nights Alone

User Review  - Belcantomom - Goodreads

This book wasn't nearly as satisfying as I'd hoped. I was expecting profoundness a la Anne Morrow Lindbergh or Thoreau (it should have been, she idolized him enough); but it just wasn't. I felt like ... Read full review
