The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

West With Giraffes - Lynda Rutledge - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of West With Giraffes:

The great American Giraffe road trip during the Great Depression.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Lions got no choice but to always be lions. We do."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Do you like animals?

What would you do to make your mark on the world?

My review of West With Giraffes:

Such a fun road trip adventure story.

Full of historical facts and rich detail.

Based on a true story.
