If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Short review of Wyoming Author

Buy it Here

Laura Bell gracefully crafted "Claiming Ground" with vivid western images of open ranges, mountains, and towards the end, people.
The first half of the book relies heavily on the abundance of descriptions to set the readers up for a life away from the city. While the second half of the book concentrates on personal relationships and learning. 

It's a beautiful memoir about hearing an inner calling and acting upon it. Bell includes themes of escapism mixed with experience to try and find her own footing throughout the book. There is a consistent idea of moving, sometimes back and sometimes forward, but always there.

I think I'd like this book, especially the theme of moving forward or backwards. We're all moving in one direction or the other. ALWAYS.
Thanks!
