Description: The Chicago Tribune called Kim Barnes's In the Wilderness "revealing, spiritual, cleansing, transcendant -- and awash in the elements that make life's flow so unpredictable, wonderful, and often haunting." Now this extravagantly gifted writer offers another, even more compelling personal narrative.

On the day of her 1976 high school graduation in Lewiston, Idaho, after a disagreement with her father -- a logger by lifelong trade, and a fervent adherent of the Pentecostal Christian faith in which Kim had been raised -- she gathered her few belongings and struck out on her own. Alone for the first time, she sought to be her own woman -- without skills, without funds, with barely a shred of knowledge of the world outside the insulated confines of her family. She moved only a few blocks away, but she might as well have been alone on another planet.

It is a classic story of the search for knowledge -- of all sorts -- and the consequences, both dire and beautiful, of that search.
