Description

"Wild Ride Home is a gorgeous, compassionate exploration of life, loss, and love. Hemp dives deep, with clear eyes and a strong heart, into the events in our lives that could make us fall, and shows us how to stand up, be still, and draw the power into ourselves." -- Erica Bauermeister, author of The School of Essential Ingredients

"How is it possible to read a book with so much death in it and so much joy? Here is a family of people who look life straight in the eyes, a horse who runs circles around sorrow so that sorrow itself laughs out loud, and a writer who is such good company I never wanted the book to end."
--Marie Howe, New York State Poet Laureate 2012-2014 and author of The Good Thief, What the Living Do, and Kingdom of Ordinary Time, and Magdalene

"WILD RIDE HOME held me spellbound. I came out of this beautiful book really aware, in a visceral way, of all that life holds in store for us, both the wonderful and the tragic, and of how a melding of these inevitable experiences can (and should) make us stronger. There is joy if only we can see, taste, feel, and grasp it. I think of Christine Hemp's poem in a rocket ship traveling millions of miles into outer space, and it would be wonderful if this memoir could travel around the earth helping us all to understand that, in the final analysis--no matter what--life is magical. This story gives me the sense that I, too, can deal with whatever when the time comes. At the end of WILD RIDE HOME my reaction is to say, "L'chaim."
--John Nichols, author of "The Milagro Beanfield War"
