Breaking Wild - A Gripping Read
Breaking Wild is a perfect read for March’s celebration of Women’s History Month. This story of survival in the Colorado winter wilderness features two incredible female protagonists. Amy Raye, a bow hunter becomes lost on her solo quest to fill her elk quota. Rescue Ranger, Prue Hathaway and her dog, Kona are determined to find Raye. Each character is fleshed out in alternating chapters, which allows us to see the thoughts of each woman and back-story of their lives over a several week period. Diane Les Becquets presents detailed description of what a hunt entails which might be difficult reading for some. I found it a fascinating process and appreciated the perspective of the elk’s gift of sustenance to Raye. Will Hathaway’s mission become one of search and recovery instead of rescue? My prediction is that Breaking Wild will be a word of mouth hit and one and a book discussion choice.
