Description

"Through the story of facing her fears, Abdou shows us that we are much stronger than we think." -- Jowita Bydlowska, author of Drunk Mom

This personal memoir of self-discovery tackles the problems of modern parenting in a digital age

Disillusioned with overly competitive organized sports and concerned about her lively daughter's growing shyness, author Angie Abdou sets herself a challenge: to hike a peak a week over the summer holidays with Katie. They will bond in nature and discover the glories of outdoor activity. What could go wrong? Well, among other things, it turns out that Angie loves hiking but Katie doesn't.

Hilarious, poignant, and deeply felt, This One Wild Life explores parenting and marriage in a summer of unexpected outcomes and growth for both mother and daughter.
