Blame it or praise it, there is no denying the wild horse in us. -Virgina Woolf What if you could take a week off from your life every year and meet up with a group of friends to ride horses in the remote north of Iceland? Crazed midnight sun energy, randy stallions, Arctic cuisi...ne, challenging place names, ghost encounters, never-too-late in life crushes - in the land where unexpected adventures repeatedly astonish you. In Tory Bilski's memoir, Iceland becomes a Land of Oz, where an unencumbered version of the author emerges when, for one week each year, she can slip the chains of her everyday routine and responsibilities and really be herself. The author and her fellow travellers are more daring, resilient, noisier, gluttonous, and the author finds that otherwise tamped down 'wild horse' in herself. Each year brings a discovery about Iceland, about herself and about her friendship with the women, who not only find their best selves but revel in being their most ridiculous selves .
