About the Book

Fighting boredom and depression with a craving to head South from her New England home, she leaves her grown children and sets upon a back-packing journey, hitch-hiking sailboats from the Carribean to South America. In Cartagena she meets a street urchin and takes him with her through South America, Africa and India. Returning after two years to Colombia, she sells her house in NE and buys 77 acres of wild, forested land to start a farm outside Cartagena. She struggles through the assasination of her Colombian husband, living with the campesinos and surviving alone after his death. This is her story.
