 Drive Me Wild: A Western Odyssey

By Christina Nealson
Wildwords/CreateSpace: Paperback, 220 pp, $14.00

 Reviewed by Annie Dawid

“Ever since I was a little girl I’ve had a special relationship with trees. The one time I ran away I ventured two blocks (it felt like miles at the time) and curled into the fetal position between the protruding roots of a giant oak. Now I joined the spirit of Buddha, who meditated under a tree and sought wisdom.”

Finalist for the Colorado Book Awards, Drive Me Wild, Christina Nealson’s memoir, offers the reader a chance to join the author on a mind/body journey across the great West. Other reviewers liken Nealson’s story to William Least Heat Moon’s Blue Highways and John Steinbeck’s Travels with Charley.
