Riding the White Horse Home is a quiet memoir about family and community. Each critical member of Teresa Jordan's family is covered in separate chapters. She deals with each character in her life with love, even when noting their faults. Even though the memoir is about life on a Wyoming ranch and the changes in ranching life, there are many truths that anyone can relate to. The writing is wonderfully simple and engaging.
