Mailbox Monday: A Hunger for High Country
Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.
I got one book last week, and I am very excited to read it:
A Hunger for High Country: One Woman’s Journey to the Wild in Yellowstone Country by Susan Marsh, published by the Oregon State University Press.
Marsh was one of the first women hired by the US Forest Service in the 1970s, working first in Montana and then for many years in Wyoming. A Hunger for High Country is her personal memoir and a history of the agency and region. I love these kinds of memoirs about real women building the kinds of adventurous careers I've never considered. They make me think more creatively and expansively about my own career.
