this book because my family loves to be outdoors, loves to live a life with a wildness; and right now, my husband is out on the Pacific Crest Trail, living out of a tent, eating dehydrated food, and traveling each mile by foot. There are so many chapters in this book that perfectly relate to the life my family lives.
I appreciate what Roger W Thompson has pointed out in this book, and that is that we were born with a wildness instinctively within us. When we think about how God created the world, He made man in the wilderness, there were no tents, no houses, no "indoors" or "outdoors." And the point I gather from Roger's writing is that we need to reclaim that wildness in our own lives, especially with God. Once we reclaim that wildness, we need to share it. We need to create our own opportunities to stand upon the stars.
Some of the chapters are laugh-out-loud funny, some are poignant, some are somewhere in-between, but each chapter has some nugget the reader takes away from the reading.
I have to give this five stars, two thumbs up, and a VW Vanagon that has a marginal track record.
My thanks to WaterBrook/Multnomah for allowing me to read and review this book.
