Road of Her Own: Women's Journeys in the West: 09/15/17
Road of Her Own: Women's Journeys in the West by Marlene Blessing is a collection of stories and essays by women about their experiences in the west. The road part of the title is there to catch the eye but really has little bearing on the body of the book.
Put another way, this is a collection of stories republished from a variety of sources. They share three things in common if you squint: they're by women, they're vaguely road trips, they take place in the western half of North America (specifically the United States and Canada).
For the purpose of my road narrative project, this book was a waste of time. There just wasn't enough meat here to take notes on. The essays I read were pithy and many of them bordered on the long versions of things you'd find in one of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books.
