It was her idea to compete in a man's world. "Competing in a man's world" is the way Jane referred to her growing enchantment with outdoors adventure. That upsets me. I understand that people must struggle with relationships. I realize love must be learned and earned, and that it can be lost through choices made. Some might applaud the thought of a lady determined to become her "own woman" in a man's world. Not me. What bothers me is not that my petite wife of more than four decades wants to compete in outdoors proficiency, but where in the hell does she -- or anyone else -- get the idea that all in nature belongs to men?
This book, then, is about two people in love sharing a life of exciting adventure and growing in the process. In reality it's about everyone over forty who has lived and loved and struggled together toward a common dream. What makes this particular book's storyline remarkable is how many times these people fell on their butts while doing it.
