The Ride of Her Life: The True Story of a Woman, Her Horse, and Their Last Chance Journey Across America - Elizabeth Letts - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of The Ride of Her Life:

Annie Wilkins rides across America.

My favorite Elizabeth Letts quote from the book:

"You can be so worried about the challenge in front of you that you fail to realize that you've been chipping away at it all along."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What do you do when you don't know what to do anymore?

Would you be afraid?

My review of The Ride of Her Life:

Inspiring read!

Broke my heart in several places.

I was so impressed by how she faced her death.
