"The Wyoming Centennial Wagon Train ended in Cody in a dismal, torn-down drive-in movie theater. Before setting up the corral, we were forced to clear away shards of glass, bent nails, broken lumber. My prairie skirt and petticoats hung ragged and clay-caked, and under a droopy Stetson my frizzled hair appeared at once greased and starched beyond human recognition. A cloud, a sort of vaporousness, redolent with fresh acrid sweat on top of powerful stale sweat, hung thickly about me. Laced, as it was, with a woman's sweet musky secretions, and all gone past ripe, oddly it was a pungency I savored. Such goaty piquance, though, was cause to be shunned in any town setting.The look of my world had changed. Gone were the high-dollar designer clothes and the zipping around fabled Marin County in a candy-apple-red 1966 Mustang convertible. It was true that I unfailingly sought the ironies in life and, with a kind of dual personality, shifted easily through incongruencies such as town strolls in high heels and backcountry hiking in bare feet; the bucket seats of a classic automobile and the broken-down bench of a beater truck. It was only during the years that Iíd worn white overalls, taped drywall, and come home every night much like Charles Schulz's Pig Pen, flaking a cloud of dried white mud bits onto the rug, that I'd felt moved to keep my fingernails painted red. Now I was to slip farther than ever planned toward one end of my seesaw and then, incredibly, by conscious design, inch out even farther."--from Barefoot-HeartedWith more than 1.5 million copies in print, Kathleen Meyer's groundbreaking international bestseller, How to Shit in the Woods: An Environmentally Sound Approach to a Lost Art, has been widely embraced by the outdoor community and has found its way into myriad places: national parks, outdoor leadership schools and scout-troop headquarters, the camp tents of those who have discovered that it is amusing out-loud reading, and the bathroom-literature baskets of households around the world.Now, from the Rocky Mountain West, Meyer brings us Barefoot-Hearted: A Wild Life Among Wildlife, a coming-into-the-country story told with the frank, dry humor and sharp research of her first book. The country, in this case, is Montana's tall, reaching landscape with its ever underfoot wild critters; the on-tenterhooks territory of a new romantic relationship; and the pressure cooker that is our precarious global imbalance. Meyer finds herself in midlife standing out under yawning skies, surrounded by sagebrush and cactus, having fallen for the Irish charm of itinerant farrier Patrick McCarron. As partners, they travel across three mountain states with draft horses and a covered wagon and then set up housekeeping in a seventy-five-year-old dairy barn.In this primitive structure, the author rapidly discovers she's living with troops of mice, a nursery colony of seventy-five bats, sexually fired-up skunks, and more flies than in a pig shed. She tells of a freakish season that or-phaned seventy-seven bear cubs, an unusual fly-fishing trip on a famed blue-ribbon trout stream, the visitations of moose, and the discovery of a den of wolves.Meyer's prose is original and inspired, playful yet provocative. She carries us vividly back to the settlers' old West while pondering modern-day dilemmas, those of fitting into this fast hurtling world, of determining amid the earth's rising extinctions of species, whose planet it is, and of managing to stay empowered residing with a man who "stands six feet six and beats steel on an anvil for a living." A personal chronicle of conscience and a love story of rare and quirky dimension, Barefoot-Hearted catapults readers into new realms of thought, deftly guided there by Meyer's sense of the ironic, the randy, and the humorous.

Kathleen Meyer's BAREFOOT HEARTED; A Wild Life Among Wildlife is undoubtedly one of my favorite books ever. It gets to the heart of an affectionately respectful coexistence with nature and all manner of creatures--horses, mice, bats, skunks, flies, bears, moose, and wolves, and last but in no way least--the drop-dead-gorgeous Irish farrier Patrick McCarron. Kathleen and Patrick, fiercely independent and just as fiercely in love, travel by covered wagon through Colorado, Wyoming and Montana before settling into an old dairy barn in Montana's Bitterroot Mountains. The writing is powerful and witty, and Meyer's voice here is as intelligent and original as in her book HOW TO S*** IN THE WOODS. BAREFOOT HEARTED is a highly sensual story--rich with musk, sage, and clover, the sweep of a Rocky Mountain valley, the scratching, cawing, and braying of animals, the feel of the dirt under Kathleen's bare feet. I especially loved her account of her wagon trip with her draft horses, Pancho and Lefty, as endearing as every other creature--animal and human, in this utterly authentic book.

A fun and funny book to read if you ever dabbled in the countercultural "back-to-nature movement" of the '70's or the looked ahead to the coming "social collapse" the in '20s as a survivalist determined to live off the land without destroying the rest of it. And a love story to boot. Thought provoking read.

I really enjoyed this book. She did a number of things I always wanted to do, but "the real world" prevented it. (Raised a large family alone, etc.) I think the feeling I got was of someone who could look after herself, and was a "helper" as well as a "helpee",. Independent, but still able to love and give to someone else.
