Could you fit everything you need on a mule? Jody Foss, in this true western adventure takes the reader across the west on rocky roads and high mountain trails. In the summer of 1984 she saddled up her mules Mavis and Sarah Jane and left her Idaho homestead heading for the coast of Oregon. She discovered a country rich in colorful oral history and old time hospitality.
"Jody's descriptive writing and beautiful pictures eabled me to remember the smells and feelings of my years outdoors."
"When my folks came there wasn't a fence in the country. Not a fence nowhere." Jack said the words quietly, like a prayer. "You'd head out in any direction and never come across a fence. And there was bunch grass as high as a horse's belly."
